Fringe is one of those trends that has never entirely been out of fashion — people were wearing it as far back as Ancient Mesopotamia, and the human race's fascination with rows of ribbons has never ended. But despite that steep history, fringe is undergoing a particularly strong resurgence right now. Too many designers to name had fringe on their spring and fall 2015 runways, so it's safe to say it will remain at the top of the zeitgeist for a bit longer.

In real life, though, fringe can be tricky to pull off. Too much can look like a costume, and too thick can look a bit too western. My advice: take a cue from street style and incorporate it into your wardrobe in the form of a pencil skirt that playfully reveals some skin from the knees down. Fringe-accented tops and accessories are also easy to wear with simple pants.
