Fringe for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: On an Accessory
Quote of the day: “Don’t subscribe to the ideals of others. Do what’s right for you. I did, and it took me years to get here, but it was worth the wait.” Brie Larson
You might even have some of this fringe trend on some of your items without realizing it. It seems to be on many accessories lately, and because of this one could consider the style “normal.” Take scarves for instance—how many of your longer scarves have a hem of fringe on the ends? Having the trendy style on an accessory is definitely an easier (and usually more inexpensive) way to try it out! The entire fringe series included this detail on your clothing (here), on a necklace (here) and now we’ll try for other components. The following variety of items featured includes Jodie with a purse, Nancy wearing a scarf and mom sporting some newer earrings. And let’s all notice that unintentionally, the three of us are also mixing our prints (see that blog series here).
50’s Outfit: So here’s a drawback of leather fringe—the tassels must have gotten warped at some time since some are not hanging straight on the sides ( I never noticed until these pictures). Both my shoes & sweater are a snakeskin print—they are the same print, but it still counts as mixing, correct?
Pants: The Limited (here & on sale)~~Sweater: The Limited (similar here)~~Shoes: Shoe Dazzle (similar here)~~Scarf: Chilly Jilly (similar here)~~Purse: Crown Vintage (similar here or here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)
60’s Outfit: We picked out a scarf from Nancy’s collection that had fringe along all of the edges for maximum showcasing! And look—the scarf is a subtle plaid print just like her shoes—but different colored prints—would you have noticed?
70’s Outfit: Metal links may not be your first thought when you hear the term “fringe,” but it has that same flowy characteristic, right? And mom is print mixing too, with her textured lace shirt & floral skirt. Would you wear it?
