I’m unclear on where summer 2019’s fringe clothing trend came from. In some ways, it feels reminiscent of last year’s infatuation with Western styles. Everything from our boots to our button-downs felt decidedly cowboy-worthy—and fringe does, too. In other ways, though, it speaks to summer’s consistent bohemian aesthetic. Fringe details find their way to flowy kimonos, flowy blouses and even more flowy maxi dresses; this isn’t new, necessarily, it’s just more abundant than usual. Or perhaps our reignited passion for fringe is simply a natural extension of our obsession with camp, with kitsch, with maximalism.  We’ve already adorned our clothing with beads, sequins, feathers, ruffles and everything in between—maybe the only recently uncharted territory was fringe.

No matter its origin story, one thing is clear: Fringe is here to pervade our closets, our Instagram feeds, our lives in summer 2019. After several designers debuted fringe-covered styles at New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019, fringe-y pieces crept into our favorite fashion-fashion retailers. Mini dresses weren’t complete without fringe-y hemlines. Pants were made better by row after row of fringe. Jacket sleeves, belts and necklaces found their way into the movement too—making it clear that no piece of clothing, no matter how small or seemingly un-fringe-able, was free from fringe’s newfound reign.

Fringe is happening. And its cloudy history leaves it feeling aesthetic-agnostic—making it a seamless addition to any summer wardrobe, no matter how, exactly, you’d self-describe your #lewk.
