I’ve been noticing that fringe is coming back around, after a conspicuous absence. First it’s started with the trend of twentysomethings wearing scarves with fringe, such as keffiyehs (anti-war scarves), and so on. There are several I found just on the Urban Outfitters website, such as this:

I’ve noticed it too, during this fashion week. The fringe has moved from scarves to dresses and tops, and designers are taking creative liberties with its many possibilities. For example this top was seen in the Vena Cava show:

These dresses, which I actually really like, were seen in the 3.1 Phillip Lim show:

I wonder if this trend will catch on with more than just the fashion forward?
