Celebrities are embracing a fringe handbags trend with gusto. And why not? It is bohemian, easy-to-wear, and evokes flattering glances from the passerby and cafe-dwellers.
We are especially drawn to buttery-soft suede in browns, beiges, and greys as they add textured softness to an outfit. Although we are just as open to a weaved macrame concoction that mixes a metal chain strap with fringe embellishments.
Whether you opt-out for a convenient messenger style cross-body, a roomy hobo, or a clutch, the fringe will add a playful element to your look. Here are a few fringe bags that are swaying us at the moment. JJ Winters Suede Fringe Bag in Taupe, $395, as seen on Jenna Dewan-Tatum. This roomy hobo has been spotted on numerous boho-chic loving celebrities and is just so easy on the eye with the braided shoulder strap and plentiful fringe details.Linea Pelle Alex Suede Vintage Fringe Mini-Light Grey, $177 (from $225.00). This shoulder bag is roomy enough to store all necessities and is perfect for a summer concert (going to Coachella?), a lounge, or a movie alike. Ember Skye Nicole Bag in Nude, $374, as seen on Emmy Rossum. Another celebrity endorsed handbag, this messenger style bag is roomy, easy to carry and combines braided shoulder strap with eye-catching stitches decorating the bag’s body. Elliot Mann OMG Shoulder Bag, $209. This macrame bag is not your grandmother’s weave. It mixes metal interwoven straps with swaying fabric to create a vintage inspired bag in fresh gold.
Embrace your inner bohemian this summer and try one of these bags. Then wear the fringe into the fall. Gorgeous autumn leaves will compliment the bag’s beige and grey tones.
