Fringe Benefits

"There's Nothing Like The Movement of Fringe. Let It Fly" - Michael Kors

There's something effortlessly sexy when it comes to clothing which incorporate flowing fringe; swaying against the skin in such a subtle seductive way. As I transition recycling my wardrobe from Fall to Winter, one piece that stuck out to me as an easy one to covert is my favorite leather fringe skirt from the local boutique, Dolld Kouture. As you know I LOVE leather, and fringe just adds that extra umph to the edgy/sexy factor of this skirt. Don't be fooled (or scurred!) by the ferocity of this fringe skirt, as it is really still simple enough to be styled soooooo many ways. Think chunky sweater and strappy heels, or tucked in flannel button up and flats, or long sleeve crop top with ankle booties! I love that the ensembles are endless depending on how you feel like styling it. Fringe is very in, and is an ode to the ‘70s while still managing to stay with the times perfectly. It adds a flounce to each step or really jazzes up a jacket, top or dress. I'm not a huge fan of the boho trend, so this particular piece really made me feel comfortable styling it and keeping up with the much anticipated 70's trend, without looking like I stepped back in time Three's Company-status. The asymmetrical cut is also another huge reason why I'm diggin' it, as it doesn't look like every other fringe skirt out on the market, it's as unique as the woman who boldly wears it ;-) For this shoot I decided to keep it all black errrythang - My fav! Different fabrics were also mixed and matched which always keeps things interesting. Velvet, Mesh, Leather & Suede, wheeeewwwwww that's a mouthful of various fabrics! They all worked together seamlessly, and made the Fall to Winter transition a memorable one. Though I'm all covered up, I made sure to add some sexy with Wolford's Amsterdam sheer turtleneck top. Thigh high "Pretty Woman"-esque over the knee  boots are very winter, and can be worn with jeans, leggings, dresses, and as you see here, with a fun fringe mini skirt! I purchased this seasons Sergio Rossi Matrix OTK boots for a major steal on Shop-Hers, best wardrobe investment purchase in quite some time! It's a bit chilly in San Francisco, so I was a good girl and made sure to bring a jacket, a very luxe velvet one ;-) I kept my accessories minimal, recycling my classic Chanel quilted clutch and pairing it with my silver H&M high-lo rings. Couldn't help but compliment my dark pout to my ensemble, embodying that true dark winter feel. No need to feel you have to be a celebrity, or heck, even a white guy to be pretty fly (Ok ok, bad 90's reference smh lol), just take it from Mr. Kors himself, Fringe = Fly ;-)
Fringe isn’t going away anytime soon, at least not this fall or winter. It has moved on from bags and shoes and made its way into more structured pieces. Tamara Mellon updated her famous fringe skirt by adding pops of green, purple or red. And Tom Ford brought movement and flirtiness to classic pieces, like a knee-length skirt and perfect white dress, with tiers of fringe. For her 2016 Resort Collection, Victoria Beckham added movement to her coats with minimal, asymmetrical fringe accents. - See more at: http://azureazure.com/fashion/fall-winter-2015-fashion-trends#sthash.wT8Z0wpH.dpuf
