Fashion can come in many ways, shapes and sizes, and tassels/fringing is certainly a way to bring that sense of individuality to any outfit.

When looking back over the many fashions that have seemed to keep returning in different styles, Fringing is one to date back to the early 1920’s swinging days where many women wore these shimmering, flamboyant fringed dresses with beautifully matched headwear to dance in whilst there twirling routines would see the fringes flaunting their svelte figures underneath.

As always there will be designers who will make memorable choices by using a staple like fringing seem so unapproachable in everyday wear, but it can bring so much too even the simplest of outfits.

Particularly it has more often than not been used to complete a look with bags and shoes, but at the latest S/S 16 Fashion Week’s across the globe the eccentric styling of many outfits has seen tassels come in many forms on the runways and in the celebrity circuits as of late.

The most popular time to see fringing in most styles is around the festival season where the majority of women will wear them on fringed bags, or on the returning fringed suede jackets and waistcoats to bring together a hippy chick look perfect for any summer holiday or festival.
