Rarely do I get wrapped up in a trend or romanced by the look of the moment.  I have a uniform of sorts, and for the most part I stick to it. My typical formula consists of classics with a twist and feminine paired with masculine (or maybe the other way around).  I wouldn’t say I’m conservative, just cautious.  I’m terrified of being called trendy, leery of joining the crowd and having my style dictated to me through trend reports and runways. – BUT – As I get older I realize that my classics can sometimes read serious and my borrowed-from-the-boys looks could be called boring, yipes!  Time to try something new.

Suddenly I’m feeling fringe.
I’m not talking about a statement making flapper dress, or the fringe trimmed chaps cowboys wore in old Westerns.  Modern fringe is sleeker, edgier, and chicer.  Subtle trimmings added in just the right places, clean sharp lines adorning clutches and coats, thready knits cozy for day, and swingy skirts and dresses for night.

My plan — only wear one piece with fringe at a time, keep things neutral and avoid bright colors or patterns, and tone down accessories and makeup when wearing bolder pieces.  Fringe adds texture and tons of movement.  Fringe is fun and flirty, and just what my winter wardrobe needs!
