How To Wear The Statement Fringe Skirt

Let’s face it, fringe is always an eye-catcher.  Whether it’s on the sleeves of a leather jacket or subtly accenting the hem of a skirt, the long strands immediately draws the eyes in.  The style is ideal for weekend dressing: relaxed, effortlessly cool, and incredibly fun.  Fringe skirts make a daring statement, and yet it’s subtle at the same time, making it the perfect elevated essential.  All of this, of course, means we should all own one (and know how to wear it).

Since most of us aren’t celebrities, or have stylists to make sure we look nothing less than on point each time we leave our homes, we’re more cautious when it comes to trying new trends.  We usually leave anything drastic for special occasions instead of easing it into our everyday looks. A fringe skirt is just that. Something that would be worn whenever you ‘re looking to make the ultimate statement.

Trust me on this.  You don’t need to be going somewhere fancy to successfully pull off a fringe skirt.   In fact, fringe skirts can be worn for more casual events, brunch with the girls, and can I dare say it, but even to run errands.  Yes, it might be a little extra, but the saying goes — life is too short to dress boring.

The fringe skirt could be worn with a lived-in T-shirt or a crisp, white button-down, or like I did here, a cozy turtle neck.   I actually found this suede fringe skirt online at Shein.com for $12 last year.  I have mentioned before that Shein is definitely a hit or miss.  This piece was actually both.  I absolutely loved the material and how the skirt actually fit on me.  However, the zipper was broken.  Rather than send it back however, I took it to my trusted tailor and had a new zipper installed for $10.  Thus, this became a $22 purchase.  Even with the additional expenses however, I am still quite happy with this statement skirt.

I paired my fringe skirt with this yellow Ralph Lauren turtle neck that I thrifted from Goodwill for $2.  Besides this vibrant yellow color, I really like the neck buttons giving the turtleneck a not so plain appeal.

I always tell my clients that tucking in a shirt makes a huge difference in the look.  Following my own advice, I did tuck in the shirt and added this Obi belt from New York and Company to complete the look.

Finally, I opted for these tall suede Cole Haan boots.  These boots were also thrifted from a consignment store in Annapolis, MD called Return to Oz.  I bought these at the end of the winter season last year, and only paid $15!  Can you say YES for beautiful tall boots, under $20.  When it comes to accessories, you know my fave handbag is a clutch.  This clutch has made many appearances on this blog because it’s one of my fave.  The mixed print Aldo clutch was only $12 at the Aldo’s Outlet.
