Crop Top Style

Crop Top Style
Fringe has made a come-back, this Spring. I’ve posted this to give an idea of what has been seen on the runway. This gorgeous piece of art is a Marios Schwab sandal and if you can afford it, I envy you deeply. I’m keeping my eye out for a shoe inspired by this sandal, but sits more in my budget. If you find one, let me know !!
There was a lot more fringe seen on the runway for this season. Much of it can be found on this great blog:
I love this modern touch on vintage; romantic, but with a presence that stands independently.
If you are a lucky woman who can afford these pieces, you can find them by clicking on their images, below. (The bandeau top is reasonable, but I’m afraid the rest of it is more of a castle in the sky for me.) Enjoy!

Spring 2013 – Fringe

Weekend Wear
As with most beautiful things in life, fringe is something that can be quickly overkill. But if worn in moderation, and with taste, fringe can be the perfect way to add echo to your bounce this season.  I look at fringe as one of the most musical styles. It’s a silent orchestra as it swings and flips against your body. It’s eye-catching without being an eye-sore, and it’s lyrical without being loud.
Any wandering spirit should have at least one piece of fringe in her closet.
I have some advice on wearing fringe. Of course, you didn’t really ask for it and that makes my advice unsolicited. And as with any piece of advice, it’s not written in gold on some magical stone that seals the fate of the world, or anything. It’s just advice.
  • A bohemian spirit is not limited to the young, so don’t let your age stop you from giving fringe a try this spring – give in to that inner gypsy !!
  • Too many statement pieces on an outfit is like too many divas in a room. No one knows where to look and they just end up confused. Fringe is a statement, in and of itself, and it should be worn minimally.
  • Keep the amount of colors in your ensemble limited, and minimize accessories.
  • And finally – I cringe even as I say this because I know I sound like my mother, but … it is true … nothing destroys style more than drooping shoulders.

Wander with purpose, and anchor only to love.
