Fringe was trendy over the summer, and it’s only getting more so as Fall collections roll out. The playful style runs through the incoming pieces from Frank Lyman Design, one of our featured designers. Remember the beautiful work this label did with the laser cut fabrics which gained popularity earlier this year? Well, they’ve lived up to their reputation with these exciting looks.
Though “elegant” isn’t usually a word we associate with fringed vests, it definitely describes this crocheted piece (Shop Now: 63101U). Everything from the glossy cording to the smooth weave shows masterful attention to detail. There’s a sense of harmony in the way the technique flows subtly from weave to fringe without a marked hem.
There’s nothing subtle about this attention-getting top ( Shop Now:55106U)! The swinging gold fringe is fixed to the shell just above the bust line, giving natural movement whenever you shift. What’s clever here is how the lower half is dyed black to match the sleeveless shell underneath. That lets the fringes be long enough to make it move sensuously, not erratically, without overwhelming your figure.
The same technique helps balance the full-length fringe on this dynamic cocktail dress (Shop Now:61101U). A touch of white at the neckline breaks up the solid black of the underlying sheath, but fringe is the real star of the show. Those extra few inches below the shell hem are perfect for highlighting your calves, so pair this with heels, not flats.
