Why You Need A Fringe Jacket This Fall
The fringe trend has been all over the catwalks since last year. Nearly every designer added fringe to their collections, whether on jackets, dresses, or handbags. Fringe and cowboy boots were a big trend and are still popular this fall. We’ve seen the Wild West theme not only during Fashion Week and on Instagram but also in the streets <- insert me swaying around Jackson Hole all week in my vintage suede jacket.
The most obvious way to wear fringe is on a suede jacket, paired with jeans and cowboy boots ->
Watch Toy Story 3 if you need some inspiration for your western look.
But you can find fringe jackets in the most varied styles and materials; leather, denim, wool, embellished with studs or logos, you name it <- and I’ve linked them all below.
Second-hand shops are excellent places to get vintage and previously-owned designer jackets.
I snagged my jacket at Womenfolk Jackson Hole -> a collection of timeless, quality vintage and designer consignment clothing sourced and curated in Jackon Hole, Wyoming. If you come to Jackson Hole, this shop is a MUST!
The last time I wore a fringe denim jacket was for Outside Lands 2016, and THANK GOD it is still hanging in my closet! This jacket was impossible to find the summer of 2016 and by some act of God, my mom got her hands on an xs the week before my birthday and Outside Lands… I wonder if it still fits?!
And now look at us, here we are. It’s time to shop for outerwear, I’m was already fringe obsessed, but my trip to Wyoming made me want to scream it from the Tetons. I guess that’s mostly because it is a huge part of the street style here and everyone is making it look so cool and appealing.
If you invest in any of the current options — I’m particularly fond of this Stella McCartney splurge, Topshop’s ecru faux fringe dream, and the Danielle Bernstein x Macy’s, Faux-Suede Fringe Jacket, — you’ll be really making a statement. So much so that the rest of your outfit accouterments will barely require any attention at all. I see no better reason to hop on the bandwagon.
