As we prepare to greet Fall 2017 trends and slowly shift from summer into the upcoming season, it’s time to assess the various trends on the runways. Among the rich colours and sumptuous fabrics lies the little fringed dress, which has taken over the catwalks with its design and attention to detail. In a bevy of shades and a multitude of silhouettes, fringe-accented frocks can suit just about any occasion. While it may not be autumn yet, this is certainly a fall runway trend which you can wear right now. Take a look at the catwalks, and follow our guide to embracing fabulous fringe.
For a new spin on basic black, take your sartorial cues from Michael Kors. Slip into an elegantly tailored long-sleeved dress with a flapper inspired fringe hem. The look of gently falling fringe creates a graceful, chic effect, while glitter and sparkle add glamour to the overall design. For a finishing touch, accent your waistline with a little black belt and slip into a pair of strappy heels.
A delicate fringe bodice can easily brighten a sheath dress, and a hearty dose of ruby red colour certainly helps. For a dramatic effect, think illusion neckline, floral embroidery and a delicate slit up the leg. Whether you have a gala on your social calendar or you’re dressed up with nowhere to go, try introducing a fringed bustline into your look.
At Jenny Packham, simplicity was the order of the day when it came to sporting fringe. This short-sleeved, poppy red frock makes a grand entrance with its Western style fringe detailing. Slip into a pair of fishnet tights, and then add pearls for a look which combines ladylike charm with vampy vixen style.
