Fringe has made numerous
comebacks over the past few decades, and the tassel has once again shimmied its
way back into the fashion spotlight. Back in 2013 for their Spring/Summer
collections Designers such as Elie Saaab, Versace, Rodarte and Bottega Veneta
all featured some variation of the tassel inspired by the 1920’s flapper girl style,
also known as the Charleston dress, which was the epitome of rebellion in post
war America.

This season fringe is on
everything from leather jackets and high heeled shoes to denim shorts inspired
by the bohemian look of the hippy era of the late 60’s and early 70’s as shown
on Tommy Hilfiger Spring/Summer 2015 runway show, which also sports psychedelic
colours and stars and stripes.

trend head over to Beyond Retro where they go more in depth into the trend that’s
hitting the High-street and Catwalk’s this summer. http://www.beyondretro.com/en/blog/2013/04/25/a-brief-history-of-fringe-benefits/
