Fringe Benefits

The fringe trend is in and ready to make a slight comeback like some of the other fashion statements previously. This slight element gives the ensembles a slight flow with body and completes an outfit without you even trying; which is the ultimate goal here and Alexander Mcqueen  is a great reference to this trend in particular. Upon his fall 2017 line, he incorporated fringe slightly into his growns. Not overdoing the trend while trying to keep it simplistic and minimal. Tops and dresses especially are taking on the trend and will be easy to pair other things with. A little flow to certain pieces, will make your strut even better!
