DIY the trend : Fringe

for those of you currently glued to the Spring 2015 fashion weeks around the world
you will already be well aware of the trends hitting the scene, one of which is:

fringe detailing

showcased by the likes of Marchesa, MM6 Maison Margiela, Kaelen, Proenza Schoulder, Whistles, Preen and many more.

luckily, fringe is something easily replicated at an achievable budget, and you can get some great results with nifty DIY tricks.

Simply adding fringed details to existing garments, check out three examples you can easily achieve below:

...adding a simple motif to a tee (or shift dress, back of a jacket)...

 ...adding fringe to the hem of a dress, in this case a t-shirt dress, but just as easily add it to almost any other style of dress, each with differing results, and angled hem would also work fabulously...

 ...adding fringe panels, try inserting in sleeves as shown here, or the sides of a top, dress, skirt, at the centre front or centre back- if you don't fancy having skin showing, you can pop a semi-sheer fabric behind the fringe panel or a contrasting colour...

for me, the simpler the better, you can easily go over board with fringed triming, 
but keeping it simple will give you an effortless chic (or je ne sais quois) appeal.

If you are not a sewer yourself- don't despair, have a chat with your local tailor/garment repairs shop, 
you may find they will be happy to sew the fringe on for you (you will be able to find it most craft/fabric/sewing shops or online!) for a fraction of the cost of buying the new season garment
