Windows down driving, sun shining, jamming out to your favorite song…yep, it’s that time of year again, spring is finally here! Not only does this mean that summer is right around the corner, but I’m sure that a lot of you fashionistas out there know that this time of year also brings festivals. With some of the world’s top music festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo approaching, there is no doubt why fringe is one of the top trends to be seen this spring and summer. The amazing music, great friends, and cool hippie vibe is the perfect atmosphere for fringe to be styled into our festival outfits.
As I was walking on campus this morning I couldn’t help but notice and pull aside this fashionista on her way to class. Not only did she catch my eye with her intriguing color palette sporting a bright tangerine dress and mint green scarf, but I was in awe at the daring, beautiful fringe on her dress. When I got closer I saw the dress had a delicate floral embroidery design on the front with a chained, draping fringe on the sleeves and bottom hem of the dress. This fashionista flawlessly styled her outfit for a bohemian feel with the addition of her colorful scarf, black booties, stacked accessories, and black hat. Her outfit had such a down to earth feel that I couldn’t help but think that this would be the perfect dress for any festival and had to share it with all of you.
There are so many different ways you can add this festival fringe look to your wardrobe this season. If you are obsessing over the style of her fringe dress as much as I am, check out Nasty Gal’s white sheer fringe dress. If the length of the fringe is too extreme for your taste, try a suede brown fringe jacket or vest to pair over a band tee with high rise jean shorts. One of my favorite ways to include fringe without going overboard is to accessorize with a fringe boho bag to complete your look with a hippie feel. This embroidered bag by En Shalla completes any festival inspired look. Planning on spending your spring break at the beach or having a summer beach get-away? Sport this trend with a fringe bathing suit top next time you’re out catching some rays this summer.
Spotted: Who could ever own too many bathing suits? I recently discovered this adorable online bathing suit shop called The Girl and The Water that has a ton of cute fringe tops. Check out my top pick by Boys and Arrows which has undoubtedly become my new must have item for this summer!
