Fringe Dresses Are the Most Fun Way to Wear This 2023 Trend

It's a case of the more fringe, the better.

Spring weather always brings with it a wardrobe refresh. Gone are the dull neutral tones of winter and fall. Instead, they're replaced with color, print and, in if you've been at all aware of the biggest spring 2023 fashion trends, fringe. The onetime Western style staple has been revamped by brands like Proenza Schouler, Jonathan Simkhai, and, most daringly, Chloé to include colorful and dramatic tendrils that are sure to make a statement. While it showed up on both skirts and tops, the best fringe dresses prove that donning a fringed frock is the easiest way to incorporate the look into your summer 2023 wardrobe. 

Luckily, you don't need to opt for a fully-fringed option to take part in the trend this season. Many dresses on the market right now feature just a touch of fringe along the hemline for a more subtle take on the look, or come in shades like creamy off-white or standard black. These simpler styles can be worn with a pair of flat sandals or trendy sneakers. Others, however, are sheer enough to be styled over a bikini in the daytime for a elevated beach outfit, or over a coordinating underwear set for a summer date-night ensemble. The most fun options on this list are perfect to wear with the most sparkly pair of platform heels in your closet.  

Ahead, I've rounded up all of the best fringe dresses to style all summer long, including a few party-ready, sparkly options from brands like ASOS, Zara, ELOQUII, and more. Keep reading to find your new favorite summer dress
