I was going to wait to write about the fringe Fall trend as we got closer to September, especially since I’m doing a page of “Fringe” in the magazine for that month, but I COULDN’T WAIT! Fringe is back. And it’s back big. And though it’s not something I like a lot of, a little can be amazing. Take for instance, shoes. Some of the fringed heels out there make you look like you are wearing a small Chewbacca, while others add just enough to be fun and sexy. I don’t know about you, but I like the trend muchmore in accessories than I do in clothing. I fell in love with a couple of sandals back in the Spring (this trend actually started then) and that’s what got me obsessed about actually getting a fringed sandal for Fall. What I love about most of the fringed sandals is that they are suede, which seems very “fallish” to me. And though the Aquazurra sandal below was adorable in both the red and the yellow; the grays, blacks, and browns these new sandals are coming out in seem much more seasonably appropriate.
I guess because I’m not a huge dress wearer in general, I tend to think of summer as more “dress oriented” than other seasons. And I definitely think of white as the summery-est of colors. So those two put together? The definition of summer! Is there anything more indicative of summer than a great white dress?! I don’t think so! Whether it’s a casual shift dress worn with flats or sneakers, or a sexy white dress worn to dinner or a summer party, there is simply nothing more reminiscent of summer than a great white dress.
