Fashion Binge Says NO To Fringe!

Unless you are Cher circa '73, you SHOULD NOT be wearing fringe. I cannot make this clear enough.

Case in point:
($389, La Rok, Singer22)
Fringed hoodie? I think not. No, wait. Actually, I KNOW not.

($78, Urban Outfitters)
0% love for this.

And as much as I LOVE Hayden-Harnett, I'm torn betwixt barely and not even making an exception for their Wyeth fringed hobo:

($475, Hayden-Harnett)
Eh? Yay? Nay? I'm sorta like 60/40. But in general, wearing fringe on your person, again, unless you are Cher or wrangling steer is SUCH a nein.

Are you telling me you're not gonna shell out for a pair of knee-high, 3-fringe-tiered Minnetonka mocs this fall? C'MON, EVERYONE'S DOING IT.

Save it for your iVillage blog, Lemon said...


I have TWO pairs of Minnetonkas (tasteful fringe, howevs), and I still want that fringe dress I showed you this morning.

What can I say? I owe it all to Dolly Parton and 12 years of dance costumes.

I second the no fringe. It just looks cheesy and like a cheapened nod to Native American/Wild West wear. The OG Native American stuff is cool, but not fringe anywhere else.

I heart Cher circa '73.
And I heart fringe too! :-)
