I have been dipping my toe into the fringe trend lately. I was initially hesitant to purchase any fringe items because I thought it was a trend that was not going to stay around for that long. I was wrong. My thought is if you pair one fringe piece and keep the rest of your outfit pretty basic, then you won’t fall into the trap of looking like a 70’s Halloween costume. You know what I mean? No flares, aviators and braids when wearing fringe. It will just look like you’re going for a theme.
I have been searching for fringe skirts that are long enough, the fringe lays flat but still has a good swing to it. I was finding them but they were all a couple hundred dollars and I just wasn’t ready for that commitment. So naturally I looked to my favorite wallet friendly on point with trends designer and wouldn’t you know it….. BB Dakota nailed it. I’m not an affiliate for them or anything, even though I wouldn’t say no lol. I just really dig the brand and price range for pieces. Plus, Shopbop carries them so yeah Amazon Prime and all. I paired it with this chunky sweater which is incredibly soft and my favorite Joie booties which Nordstrom is price matching right now, jump on it. I will say the skirt runs small, so size up. I’m usually a 4 in skirts but I have wide hips. I went with a 6 in it and it fits perfectly.

When I posted this look to my instagram it got so much great feedback but one comment stuck out about having some place to wear it to. Honestly, I wore it out with my Patriots shirt the other day to watch the game. Just rock it. I was waiting for a comment from Mark when I walked out in it and it didn’t even raise an eyebrow. So either he is totally getting used to my fashion or he wants dinner cooked. I can’t tell you which one is correct. It would wear with tights and boots to make it Winter worthy or tuck it away for the Spring. At that price point you will be happy you did.
Are you down with the fringe trend? If so what pieces do you own? Hope everyone is having a fab week! Don’t forget about my Stiks cosmetics giveaway! xoxoxo
