How to wear fringes

According to dictionary "Fringe" is an ornamental border of threads left loose or formed into tassels 
or twists, used to edge clothing or material. 
It has always been en vogue, but this year runways were full of fringed clothing and accessorises. 
Wearing fringes is not a dificult task, however our usual advice to boho novices would be "the less is better". You need to master your skills of combining fringed items with normal ones. With too much fringes you risk to look like a hero of the Western movie. 
We suggest you using more fringed accessorises or cover ups and less fringed clothing. The best would be:

Fringed bag

Festival fringed suede bag


Fringed boots

Ash fringed boots 

Fringed jacket

Boho leather jacket

Fringed shawl

Boho gypsy shawl


Fringed poncho
Ottoman poncho with fringe


Fringed belt

Boho kuchi tribal belt with a fringe


more on fringes you can read in our previous posts here We love fringes

Effortless Gypset/ Gypsy look

Today we tried to recreate proper gypsy look in contemporary interpretation - what we call Gypset look, which includes long patterned skirt, shawl with a fringe and a cropped top. We didn't include any headdress or hairband on purpose, as it may look too historical, too heavy together with a shawl. Furthermore, as long as there is a pattern on skirt and shawl, only plain top can be used in this look. For the hair you can "put a flower in your hair" (if you go to San Francisco )

Nine ways of wearing a shawl



Shawl serves many different purposes..
Fashion: letting you transform casual outfit to a fashionable boho style look or giving a day dress chic night touch
Warmth: shawls keep you warm in a cold winter day or can be worn as a cover for a dress in a chilly summer night
Shawl is a perfect present, which spare you from finding out right size of the receiver.

Shawl can by worn in many different ways, allowing you to transform a top to skirt, and skirt to dress with a simple pin. Ways of wearing a shawl are limited only by your creativity.
