Thank goodness it’s Friday, right? I don’t know about you, but this has been a long, busy week at work for me. I’m definitely looking forward to some downtime this weekend. Unfortunately, it’s still pretty chilly here in Chicago. This week’s warmest temps were barely 50 degrees. Sometimes I torture myself by using a weather app to check the 10-day forecast in places like Hawaii or Puerto Rico. I don’t suggest it—terrible idea—especially if you live in the “Windy City.” I have hope that spring-like temps are on the horizon. So, in the spirit of warmth, sunshine and retiring sweaters for the year, I’ve been doing a bit of online window-shopping.
While browsing, I’ve found a trend I’m excited to introduce into my warm weather wardrobe. Fringe and tassels are just about everywhere right now. This season, the look extends beyond festival wear (think: Coachella) and translates to everyday chic. Fringe gives an outfit excitement, texture and movement. With tassels, they work for both night or day—you can dress up the look or keep it casual. This trend can be incorporated into your style with small, subtle elements like a fringe accessory. Earrings, bracelets and purses are among my favorites. Or, you can just go for it with a fringe top, dress or skirt. My tip for trying this look: don’t overdo it. Keep things simple by wearing only one fringe piece at a time. Also, there are some really affordable looks out there, so shop around and don’t over-invest. Interested in some fringe benefits of your own? I’ve gathered a few of my favorite fringe and tassel looks. Shop the look:
