Fringe and tassels, we see this everywhere, sometimes without even realizing it. Whether it's the design of a necklace, the tassel on a bag, or even hanging from the hemline of a kimono, fringe seems to be sneaking its' way into stores and eventually people's closets. Some may prefer to play it safe and just carry a bag with fringe, while others may go for it and make fringe their statement piece, for example a fringe skirt. I don't personally own a fringe skirt, but man would I like to get my hands on one.

From bloggers to celebrities, the fringe jacket is becoming the statement piece of choice.

Or, as my mom would put it, you can look like a bathroom rug. Despite her derogatory terminology, this is my favorite.
As I said earlier, fringe has been appearing in our wardrobes quite a bit, especially in bags and kimonos. These styles are more subtle than the jacket. I believe that these styles have been preparing us for welcoming more fringe into our closets. Now that people have gotten adjusted to the idea of fringe adorning their clothing in subtle ways, I think this coming fall we will be ready to up our fringe game and welcome the fringed jacket with open arms.
