Fringe Fashion: Take The Trend from Summer to Fall
If you think fringe was just a warm-weather trend, think again! Summer will be over before you know it. But instead of mourning, we’re focusing on all the chic outfits we’ll get to wear this fall. There are tons of ways to incorporate the fringe pieces you wore this summer into the new season. Here are 12 inspiring outfits to get you started!
Fringe Jacket + Mini Dress
Layers are key when it comes to transitioning from summer to fall. Your leather jacket is a staple, but one with fringe is decidedly cooler. Throw it on over a printed mini dress as Alicia of Cheetah is the New Black did for a perfect weekend outfit.
Fringe Pencil Skirt + Silk Blouse
Want to work fringe at the office? Try a smart pencil skirt with swishy tiers like this one on Wendy’s Lookbook. Paired with a silk blouse, it’s both modern and professional. Plus, it practically demands to be taken to happy hour.
Fringe Sweater + Wide-Leg Pants
For those in warmer climates, lighter fringe pieces can still make the transition. From Damsel in Dior, check out Jacey’s sleeveless fringe sweater—it’ s perfect to wear alone and will make the best layering piece once it cools down. Complete the understated look with an elegant pair of wide-leg pants.
Fringe Sandals + Skinny Jeans
Suede fringe sandals are easy to take from season to season, especially in a neutral color like gray or tan. We love how this pair on Mia Mia Mine instantly updates a plain jeans-and-tee combo.
Fringe Dress + Sandals
A fringe dress is your secret to being the most stylish girl at the party this season. Just take your styling cues from Blair of Atlantic Pacific. Bring back that dress that worked all summer with a few key accessories in autumnal shades like sienna and cognac.
Fringe Cardigan + Tee
Overzealous AC in every office, shop, and restaurant has taught us to never be without a cardigan or wrap during the summer. A fringe cardigan plays into the boho and ’70s trends so well that it will get just as much wear in the fall as it did in the summer. This one on Ashley of Pursuit of Shoes is perfect for in-between weather and easy to copy; just slip your fringe cardigan over a tee, and add jeans and sandals or ankle boots.
Fringe Sweater + Fringe Skirt
A fringe-trimmed sweater and elongated fringe midi skirt may sound daring, but pulling it off is really all about the right silhouette. In this look, Liz of Late Afternoon perfectly plays with proportions, doubling up on fringe but keeping the whole look flattering. Her open-knit sweater is especially smart for the transitional months!
Fringe Jacket + Skinny Jeans
Sheryl of Walk in Wonderland shows off a glamorous take on the fringe trend with her swishy jacket. It makes a statement while still being easy to wear. We love her casual look, teaming the jacket with gray skinny jeans and mules.
Fringe Dress + Double-Breasted Vest
We’d hate to put away this slinky fringe dress for the cooler months. Clever layering is the key to getting a few more wears out of yours. Take a styling tip from Krystal of This Time Tomorrow, and cover it with a double-breasted vest or chic tuxedo jacket.
Fringe Bag + Maxi Dress
Fringe accessories are, not surprisingly, the easiest to transition from season to season. A fringe bag will instantly make any outfit feel more current. Our perfect outfit for the first day of fall is this maxi-dress-and-fringe-bag combo we spotted on Sheridan of Blue Eyed Finch!
Fringe Jacket + White Jeans
The rule about wearing white after Labor Day is antiquated. Arielle of Something Navy sports white jeans and an ivory fringe jacket to maintain that fresh feeling of summer with enough coverage to feel comfortable in cooler weather.
Fringe Sweater + Skirt
Lightweight sweaters always make for easy transitional outfits. A fringe sweater that you wore with shorts or mini skirts on cool summer nights will be a hero piece in the fall, too. On those lingering warm days, copy this cute look on Julia of Gal Meets Glam, and team yours with a midi skirt and ballet flats.
