Our obsession for fringe has reached a new level this summer with the latest crop of fringed styles. Once relegated to the bohemian set, fringe has really been embraced as a true fashion star player, showing up in everything from shoes, to handbags to swimwear.

Here are some of our favorite fringed fashions for this summer:

Free People Borderline Cotton Tee: This semi-sheer top gives such a relaxed, effortless feel.

Libby Edelman Bellamy: Draped in fringe and chains, this sensational shoe really sets the tone for the rest of your going-out ensemble.

Noir Jewelry Artisan Bugle Bead Necklace: Add a lush draping of fringe with this modern necklace.

Big Buddha Rita hobo bag: With a healthy dose of fringe and metal, this convenient handbag is surprisingly versatile.

L*Space Dolly Fringe Bandeau Top: Add some fun movement and interest to your pool attire.

Blue Tasel Fringe Top: This delicately sheer top has a playful fringe front that sets it apart from the average.

Night Out

A flowy printed maxi dress, like the BCBGeneration Pleated Maxi Dress, is the ultimate go-to piece that instantly adds an effortlessly chic presence. Keep your footwear sleek and minimal when going with a busier print like this. We love a gladiator flat sandal like the Cole Haan Deandra Gladiator. A simple ALDO handbag in a neutral hue and some bold red jewelry like Lucky Brand Expedition Red Coral Earrings and Lucky Brand Cross Culture Bangles make this down-to-earth date look a real hit.

Beach/Pool Day

To really bring out a sunkissed tan, try wearing a white bikini like the Ella Moss Sahara separates. A pair of minimal T-strap sandals, like the Lucky Brand Georgia, gives a more sophisticated look than your average rubber flip flops. Of course, you’re going to need something to carry your beach essentials in. The Big Buddha Mission Bag is a pretty version of the classic beach straw tote, perfect for keeping your magazines, sunglasses, sunscreen, and everything else you need for basking in the sun. Don’t forget to protect your hair and face with a laid-back Steve Madden straw hat.

Around Town

For a day of sightseeing, pick cute and comfy pieces like the Steve Madden Flutter Ruffle Top and AG Malibu Bermuda Shorts. If flats aren’t your thing, try a pair of platform wedge sandals like the Nine West Bottos for a good combination of stability and height. Keep yourself hands-free all day with a crossbody bag like the Fossil Tava. A dainty Fossil bracelet and MICHAEL Michael Kors La Palma sunglasses finish off this charming look for exploring the town.

Airports

Last but certainly not least, planning comfy yet stylish outfits for the airport and plane is essential for the trendy traveler. A flowy top, like the Brigitte Bailey Sarienne Cinched Tunic, is a great option. Wear it over comfy black leggings like the Culture Phit Natalie. A pair of flexible flats is essential for traveling because it’s not only comfortable, it’s easy to slip on and off at security checkpoints. Again, we highly recommend a roomy crossbody bag like the Aldo Santomenna. This keeps your hands free and your tickets and other essentials at close reach. When choosing luggage, pick something that’s easy to spot at baggage claim. Try a printed and/or brightly-colored one like the Anne Klein Around Town 20” Expandable Rolling Suitcase.

With a little planning and the some key pieces, you’ll ensure a stylish and comfy vacation without having to worry about what you’ll wear from day to day. Remember to keep the weather in mind as well. Check the weather forecast before you start packing. Happy travels!
