From Bell Bottom Boots to Tasseled Eyewear

 - Jun 17, 2009   Updated: Mar 31 2011
Nothing expresses movement quite as expertly as fringe. These tasseled fashion collections showcase the best of this genre, from fringed belts to dresses, boots and even false eyelashes.

I'm particularly fond of the modern flapper fringe dresses, which we've seen strut down everything from haute couture runways to sidewalks in style meccas like NYC.

Implications - Fringed fashion offers a new layer of style and a theatrical element to clothes. Boisterous and flashy, fringe gives ordinary outfits extra flair, almost instantly. While once left to purses, dresses and shirts, fringe has now reached unexpected fashion items like sunglasses and there is no telling what fringe will accent next. Perhaps it's not even too far off to imagine fringe on things like gadgets and household appliances!
