10 Best Fringe Bags
Whether your style is hippie chic or sleek and sophisticated, this season’s It bags add a little swing to your step.
Ever since the ‘60s, fringed leather has come around again and again in a variety of incarnations (moccasins, anyone?), and this season it’s back in the form of the season’s hottest handbag.
Here’s some expert advice to keep you looking like you belong with the trendsetters like Kate Moss (who totes a Genevieve Jones bag named after her) and not – ahem – the lunatic fringe:
Stick to Classic Colors. These bags look best in classic shades like brown and black, but are especially fresh in edgy gray.
Suit Yourself. From classic beaded leather to rocker-chic with chains, this spring trend comes in many variations. Choose one that best fits your personal style and it will work with your wardrobe.
Whoa, Cowgirl. To avoid looking like you’re headed to a square dance, steer clear of denim skirts, cowboy hats and boots. Pair these bags with something a bit more surprising, like a great blazer or utility jacket.
