Fringe 3 (On an Accessory)

Fringe for 50, 60 & 70 year old women.

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?

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?

      How fabulous Marilyn—your suggestion must have been the key!! You are one smart cookie (and cookie maker–ha ha)!! Thanks tons!!!

      • I am tickled Jodie and glad to sponsor your work in our feature area!

  • sue

    Wow Jodie! I love all three looks. I have a scarf exactly the same and I love the bag and earrings.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Sue!! It is a fun scarf since there is more fringe on it than some others!! Is yours blue plaid also?

      • sue

        No, mine is white I actually bought in Italy about 3 years ago!

        • Jodie Filogomo

          So not only is it a great scarf, it’s a fabulous memento—how neat!!

  • I like how all three are different, yet the same! Thank you so much for linking at #overthemoon! I look forward to seeing what you share every week. Please come back for #WonderfulWednesday or #ThursdayFavoriteThings. Don’t forget to comment your link #’s so I can be sure to visit and you get a chance to be featured! Pinned and shared.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      How nice of you to say that Marilyn!! Thanks!
      I’ll try to join the Thursday link up—if I don’t get there at the beginning, it gets to 2 or 3 pages, and then I feel it’s not quite worth it…

      • I know. I have one party that uses pages but found when you add a link you go back and check on it to make sure it took and you see all links on the later pages. On another there are no pages so you see them all. That is why I ask for link numbers and feature those that comment. They get shares and comments ftom me and anyone that reads my comments. Then the features are large size at the TOP of the party and get ALL eyes. Some parties go last to first and some are random to give more a chance to be viewed. I guess it is in how you see it. I ne er left links before if I was off the first page but foubd it doesnt really matter. If you have a snazzy photo, it gets attention. Still like the fringe! Try using a cute accessory when you choose the image in the link. See if that works. One larger item, insteadof the square divided by three. Keep your post the same, just take advantage for the link image. 😉

        • Jodie Filogomo

          Thanks for the suggestion Marilyn…I might as well try it with different images…nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?

      Thanks Ana!! It is everywhere, isn’t it?

  • Love the idea of a fringe bag! It’s a fun way to wear a trend without it feeling too overwhelming. I have a tassel fringe bag that I love for spring!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You’re exactly right, Michelle—especially since my bag isn’t with me 100% of the time!! Thanks so much for commenting!!

  • Lovely the three of you fringing away.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much—-what a great way to put it—“fringing away”!!

  • I’ve always liked a little fringe! especially on a bag or scarf. You three have worked the trend so well. thanks for linking, xox


    • Jodie Filogomo

      What’s funny is, I didn’t even recognize that many of my scarves had fringe on them—to me it was just part of the scarf!! But I love it!! Thanks for always commenting from the link up, Patti—-that’s so nice!

  • Debbie Stinedurf

    Yes, the shoes and sweater count as mixing…well done! I do love fringe, especially on a handbag. Yours is the perfect everyday fringe bag, and I am in love with the silver bag!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Debbie—for some reason I’ve been really drawn to the fringe lately—and on a bag was a perfect starter to me since it’s not exactly part of my outfit at all times!!
      I appreciate your comment!!

  • Your bag is so pretty!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Tara!!

  • Love seeing this trend at any age! So fabulous.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Brooke—I’m glad that you agree—I know some women my age think it’s too young for them!!

  • Ooh I love the bag Jodie, it’s so nice! Loved the post you all look great! Gemma x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Gemma—The purse is a tad smaller than I’m used to, so I didn’t carry it tons at first…but it works for certain times! The best part? It was $7!!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Bravo! You are so right about scarves with fringe! Ha, ha. I have fringe and I didn’t even realize it! And the print mixing is perfect! Subtle, but still there! Kudos to your mom for mixing it up again and yes I think metal is fringe! Great outfits. I’m feeling some inspiration from you gals. Thank you, Jodie! – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Amy for the input!
      I came upon the realization with the scarves just when we were putting these outfits together—then I started looking at my scarves and being surprised at how many had fringe and I never thought about it!! So see how in style we’ve been without knowing it!!

  • PetiteOver40

    You know you have mastered something when you do it and don’t think about it! Look at you mixing prints like an expert!! That’s awesome! And I don’t say that patronizingly because I still have to give it a go myself! I came close today when I put on the top I’m wearing that has tiny birds on it and my shoes, which have an abstract print with similar colors. It was just slightly off, though, so I switched shoes. (Not that you can see what I’m talking about since I’m not posting a photo!)

    As for your purse, fringe is one of those things that moves when you do, so I would imagine it is only visible when you capture it in a still photo. Right? It’s a great purse!!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think many of us actually mix prints and don’t think about it (like my examples here). The more I think about it, the more I realize guys do it all the time—with a striped shirt & print tie, or Rob has these very subtle pinstripe trousers that he wears a print shirt with—and it looks great!!
      You’re right about the purse—there is movement to it usually-so the warped pieces don’t get noticed (or if they do….too bad!!)
      I can totally imagine your almost outfit—it sounds cute, but I understand when it feels off (sometimes I don’t realize my outfit is off until I take a picture of it—but hey, no one’s perfect!!)

  • I love how each one of you added just a little fringe to your outfits! Adding just a little fringe is a great way to update your outfit without going overboard I think… I love your bag! Such a great color & fun fringe detail!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Andrea—You’re so right—adding a little is the key. At first I was thinking I should have us wear a couple pieces to tie them all together—but it definitely look too much (IMO)!!
      Thanks for reading!!

  • I’m loving the new poses, by the way. Love the fringe bag. I was on the hunt for one for the longest while but then gave up. I DID however, just buy a pair of sandals that have fringe hanging from the zipper pull. I better hurry up and wear them before the trend is over! 😉

    • Jodie Filogomo

      How cute—of course you should wear them…now!! Don’t you wear everything the moment you get it? I’ll be waiting to see them…next week?

  • Queen of Rods

    I really like Nancy’s outfit today. That scarf is awesome 🙂 I didn’t notice the print until you mentioned it, but I think that it enhances the total look.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks—it’s funny because I didn’t notice the print until I was taking a picture of it—I think I was too enthralled with the fringe–ha ha!!
      I really love that you comment—thanks so much!
