One of my favorite shows from Paris Fashion Week was Balmain. I love the collections Olivier Rousteing has designed for the label and this season many of the looks on the runway had fringe. (You can see the collection here.) Of course the looks are over the top, red carpet ready, show stopping looks (which btw if I had millions in the bank I’d wear those outfits to go buy hairspray at the pharmacy, lol they’re just that fabulous) but I’m sure we all have something that’s is already in our closet that we can pull out and participate in this trend. I have a total of two items in my closet that have fringe, fringe used to never really be my thing since I never really gave it a chance to take part in my wardrobe. I did however buy this jacket I’m wearing in this outfit about four years ago and have worn it probably three times. (One of the times was in this look I posted in 2012) I just felt it was a bit too western and cow girl for me.  

But now that fringe is being seen and used in many other ways I decided to pull out this jacket from the back of my closet and show it some love. The jacket in constructed in brown suede which it screams western boho vibes and as you may know my style is far from that. To glam up this jacket I paired it with a black silk tank to add a bit of a soft sexy touch and a pencil skirt that had a kaleidoscope print in neutral colors with very small studs on it along the print. To me a pencil skirt can be an extremely sexy piece of clothing since it hugs the curves of a woman. I wanted to wear this suede fringe jacket with sexier pieces since typically a jacket like this would be worn with jeans and boots. (Don’t get me wrong the right pair of jeans and boots would definitely add sexy into this jacket as well.)

I love to take items such as this one and challenge myself to find a way to wear it in a way I love and feel comfortable with. How are you going to wear fringe this season?
