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.
