FLAPPER FRINGE Is it possible to wear fringe in a way that's modern and not silly?

THIS IS THE FASHION TIPS STYLE FROM JIL SANDER bout flapper fringe trend you should read it folks!


There’s something hypnotic about clothes that move entirely on their own accord. It’s very wild, very free. And it’s very, very hard to get right. Enter one of spring’s most swooned-over trends, flapper fringe. Unlike it’s fellow sway-and-swing-while-you-move compatriots—the bohemian fringe, the feather, and the shaggy fur—flapper fringe conveys this movement in a spare, cool way, much like the whole flapper look itself. We like it best done in a modern, hard-edged way like Raf Simmons showed at Jil Sander for spring. Those draped fringe shifts looked less like dresses than they did Frank Lloyd Wright sketches—stitched up into glossy black cobweb and flung over models as they took off down the runway. The rule of thumb here is minimalism: when picking a fringed piece to wear, silhouette and shape must be graphic, straight, and entirely minimal. Avoid colors other than black, white, and gray. And, as a rule, fringe usually works best on dresses, skirts or really bare-cut camisoles. Put all that notice-me fringe on a pair of pants, or even a jacket, and you’ll look more like a vaudeville performer than the stylish showstopper you actually are.
