Right This Moment: Fringe

Beauty & Style

As Nicole Richie and Evangeline Lilly prove, not only is fringe here to stay...


It's only getting more glamorous.



When it come to fringe, though, proceed with caution. If you're not careful, you could be
shooting for LA street chic... and end up getting mistaken for a displaced truckstop 'ho.


To help you avoid such fashion catastrophes, here are a few fringe dos and don'ts...


A fringed LBD can look sexy while subtly camouflaging a less-than-perfect midsection. This version is $52.80 from Aqua.



This fringed dress, though, draws attention to all the wrong places. It looks like they had to drug this model to get her in this dress at all...



A fringe-embellished tank, like this $79.50 Michael Kors tank from Dillards, can add interest to your outfit, either alone or under a jacket.



A fringe-bottomed tee? Not such a good idea... unless you're going to a Warrant reunion concert.



A cute fringed skirt, like this $19.80 one from Forever 21, can liven up a night out.



Rainbow-fringed leggings? No. Just no.



These fringed thong sandals ($64.95 from Chinese Laundry) manage to be fashion-forward and




These fringed boots? Not so much.



This Melie Bianco bag ($70 from Endless.com) offers a refined version of the fringed bag trend and comes in several colors. LOVE.

Now you've been schooled. In fringe. Happy Thursday!
