The '70s Trend That Will Transform Your Closet

Fringe experienced a resurgence last year, but with this spring's full-on '70s renaissance, the trend is swinging harder than ever. Don't worry; the latest appearances are more high-concept-hippie than Coachella-wannabe, with innovative iterations of the trim on everything from dresses to skirts to tops. For those of you who are ready to fully embrace the vibe with a full-on fringed outfit — or just want to test-drive a touch of the detail — we rounded up five runway ensembles to inspire. Here's how to pull off the look in a completely modern way.
The Swingy-Fringe Skirt: As Seen At Proenza Schouler
If you really want to go for it with fringe, an exaggerated, swaying skirt works wonders on the dance floor. Pair with a baggy sweatshirt for a laid-back feel.
The Pop-Of-Fringe Sweater: As Seen At Creatures of Comfort
A touch of fringe on a layered top gives your overall look extra dimension. We envision this getup alongside a mimosa at Saturday brunch.
The Fringe Dress: As Seen At Tory Buch
Give your go-to, throw-on dress a little something extra with added fringe contrast — ideal if you're looking to take a break from your LBD.

The Leather-Fringe Skirt: As Seen At Sonia Rykiel
