Along with the massive 90s movement, the 70s are also having a moment in fashion. Unsurprisingly, we've seen an influx of fringe bags over the last few months. It started last spring and continued on into the fall with Chloé's 10th Anniversary Marcie bag. Then we saw plenty of it at the fall 2020 shows earlier this year. Daniel Lee at Bottega Veneta has fully embraced this boho trend too, which creates movement on a silhouette like no other. While the original trend dates back to the flapper era of the 1920s, in the 70s designers embraced the fringe trend in new ways, creating RTW and accessories with leather strips versus beaded tassels. Now, luxury brands have embraced flowy fringe in a wide variety of ways, so whether your prefer a more casual fringe for the everyday, or a special piece with a touch of sparkle, there's a fringe for you. Though when done correctly fringe can add a fun detail, for me I'd leave it because it just doesn't suit my style. Are you loving it or would you rather leave it as well?
