How To Pull Off Fringe Without Looking Too Much Like A Cowboy

As pointed out by the Huffington Post, fringe is going to be hot this season. Fortunately, the world of social media is full of epic ideas for how to pull off fringe! Whether your look is more tomboy or totally ballerina off-duty, there's a way for you to incorporate this fun trend into your personal style. Since fringe is going to be fall's biggest fad, just enjoy and embrace it to the max!

It's hard to say why fringe suddenly took over New York Fashion Week earlier this year, but it even beat out the number of fur coats seen on runways. Pop Sugar noted how the style appeared not only on '70s-vibe leather jackets, but was "hanging off the hemlines of pencil skirts, [spotted] as a print-like embellishment on sweaters, and [completely covered] dresses. Dang.

Admittedly, I don't think I've rocked the fringed look since dressing up as a cowboy in elementary school. But whatever, fashion is all about broadening horizons, right? Right.

So grab your wallet, some courage, and go find a new fringed piece to love. Let the stylish ladies below inspire you to try a bold new look. You have nothing to lose and everything to, um, flap? So go on, get, and have fun with it!
