Fringe bags are having a moment, but that’s too much of a commitment for me (not to mention, they’re rarely done well). I prefer to approach the look from a different angle – through jewelry! The trend will be transitioning into fall, and with all of these gold tones, you’re bound to find a necklace that will fit right in during the holidays. Besides, fringe is more fun in dress or jewel form than it is on a bag – it gives you a better opportunity for movement and razzle-dazzle!
