Whimsy Threads: 7 Fringe Pieces You'll Want to Sway In

Dress up your look day or night.

We've always been ones for a fringe moment, and the runways — namely Michael Kors (pictured), Chanel, and Lanvin — have given us plenty of inspiration for fall. While the trimming inherently evokes imagery of Gatsby era or the Old West, it's still a modern way to add garnish and movement to a look. And because it's an embellishment of the non-sparkly persuasion, you can dress it up or down as you please.

For day, you can take a more subtle approach by throwing on a fringed kimono or belt. In the evening, paint the town red in a thready, free-flowing cocktail number. Shop 7 of our favorite picks, below:
