A Celeb-Vetted Moto-Jacket Alternative (That's Festival-Friendly, Too)

Festival season has fully arrived, as indicated by expensive, recreationally themed manicures, carefully edited packing snaps, and the like. As the first round of music-lovers make their way to the Coachella Valley, a very specific kind of dressing is about to become ubiquitous in your feeds: Think cutoffs, floral prints, suede and, of course, fringe. Because these items have become so synonymous with this whole festival business, they can feel a little out of place any other time of year (or in any other environment). Fringe in particular has been around for much longer, and still gets referenced on the runway. So, why solely relegate it to swaying in a crowd?

Lately, we've seen a couple very stylish celebrities opting for fringed toppers as alternatives to the sleek off-duty moto jacket. It's an easy swap for a tried-and-true outfit formula — one that fits into your festival wardrobe, if that's your thing, but that looks equally cool if you won't be hopping from tent to tent to catch every headliner this weekend. Ahead, see four styles that work year-round.

Kate Bosworth made this switch long ago. The bright brown-suede and creamy mock-neck T-shirt fit into the '70s aesthetic, the distressed denim also lending to her vintage vibe.

Soo Joo Park gives this new off-duty look the model stamp of approval. Her Barbara Bui jacket — with extra-long fringe — makes for quite the street style moment.

Kendall Jenner's Elizabeth and James topper puts a contemporary spin on this style, changing the expected black or brown coloring in favor of a dusty blue suede.

For us? You shouldn't have, Sophia Bush. Although, we wouldn't mind borrowing the collarless fringe jacket from ThePerfext.
