As the Fall 2018 season nears its close, two major trends have emerged: '80s throwbacks and Western themes. Fortunately, there's one singular garment that is capable of nailing both trends at once and serving practical warmth. Get ready to raid your parents' wardrobes again: The super-fringed jacket is making a comeback.
Fringe-adorned jackets on the runways went from as subtle as a line of leather fringe at Roberto Cavalli to long rows of the stuff at Alice + Olivia, a look that would make Sloane Peterson proud. Whether you're looking for a simple suede option from Giamba or trying to take your fringe out for the evening in high-flash gold from Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, the Fall 2018 runways were full of enough fringe to keep Cindi Mancini clothed for an entire school year.
