trend tracker: fringe


IT’S ALL ABOUT THE ATTITUDE! And nothing exudes more attitude than FRINGE when it comes to leather accessories! No wonder fringe is back in a big way (but for some of us, it never left). The bohemian inspiration of the fringe blends so well with the luxurious sophistication of leather. When it comes to style and fashion, fringe and leather create a pairing of impeccable perfection, synonymous with pearls and silk. There’s nothing more alluring than the rhythmic movement of leather fringe swinging along one’s body as you stride with confidence. Coco Blanca’s favorite fringe accessory is the leather cross body bag available in fabulous neutral colors like bone and saddle.


Fringe is trending, and not just with leather. This fabulous fashion detailing can be found on practically everything from tasseled hemlines on dresses, gowns, bikinis and scarves to ankle-straps on shoes, to ornate tassel jeweled necklace pendants and earrings.



Fringing has also made its style mark in the home! We love the way designers are using fringe and tassels in cushions, pillows, stools and blankets. When combined with the rich texture of linen and cotton and soft tone-on-tone colors like cream and grey, the overall look is incredibly captivating.


Fringing is fabulous, and for me, it’s never too much. A little attitude goes a long way!
