"I like my money right where I can see it: Hanging in my closet" - Carrie Bradshaw
I know I'm awfully late on the fringe trend but, heyy! Better late than never. Eh? (Let me know when I begin to say that too much).
The thing is I'm not exactly sure what season the fringe trend is from. Is it a new trend or is it making a comeback? I remember suede fringe outfits from a time in the past but I'm not sure if that really caught on at any point in Fashion history.
Through late last year to now, you'd however agree with me that fringed outfits have become quite common. I've seen people incorporate them into the hems, necklines and sleeves of their outfits or just wear them wholly as independent outfits.
What I love the most about this trend is how playful it is. This skirt just made me want to shake my non-existent behind and shake it I did. I also love that it gives off an air of sophistication regardless.
I styled my Ankara fringed skirt with my black corset which I previously styled with a circle skirt, here and palazzo pants, here. I paired it with my green pumps (or are they blue?) to give it an edgy appeal.
Because this is a relatively short post, I'll just digress and rant a little about how difficult it is to take pictures in public spaces in Nigeria. I mean, the moment you take out a camera and a tripod, you might as well be wielding a gun!
The guards at the Tinapa Business Resort woke up on this fine day and decided that the Resort is closed to photographers and photography. Good thing I wasn't in a feisty mood. I'd have given it to them hot. Okay, maybe not. But, yeah, these people need to come up with more ingenious ways fleece money off people. You know that I know that I can darn well take pictures here!!
Now, there aren't a lot rules when it comes to styling fringed skirts but it would help to keep the following tip in mind;
Other ways to style your fringe skirt would include;
- Layering with with blazers for an elegant finish
- Pairing with T-shirts for a casual appeal.
Sneakers or pumps can take the look from a day to a night look in just a second.
