ALL FRINGED OUT
You've got to love fringes, and if you don't, well I'm afraid you'll have to give the trend a shot...Fringes are everywhere. For Spring and Summer and well into the next cold season ( I know...we don't even want to go there right...) they were swingin' and swayin' all over the runways at Fashion Week.
Fringes have a young and fun appeal, they'll bring out the rock chick meets Buffalo Bill in you...unless you prefer to go with a more sensual, sophisticated, 1920's silver screen diva style with satin, pearls and flapper dresses that somehow, never seem to go out of style. The BoHo chic Gypset with their Neo-Hippy vibe also favour the fringe; soft and flirty...
So if you're tempted and can't resist the call... Go ahead...have an affair !!
But make it a...
In the 1920's, dancing the Charleston was the rage and those fabulous fringed 'Flapper' dresses really made beautiful ladies shimmy and shake...
And when it comes to moves...
|THE FABULOUS TINA TURNER|
No one can quite shimmy and shake like this Lady in her iconic 'Flapper' 50 decades later...
So, if you fall for the 'Flapper'...in 2015 you may be wearing this...

|GIAMBATTISTA VALLI - 2015|

You may even want to adopt the fringe à la LOUISE BROOKS...
Or, a little less 'rad'...go for a fringed evening headdress inspired by Fitzgerald's Daisy Buchanan.

Fringes can also reflect that rebellious, edgy, 'rock and roll babe' in you...( c'mon, I bet she's there somewhere...:-)))
