Lose the Fringe Kimono for Next Year’s Music Festival
Fringe kimonos were huge this season, especially at music festivals. The free-flowing, light weight fabrics and shake-ready hems encompassed the characteristics of a modern-day flower child. With help from celebrities who frequently don the boho-style, like Vanessa Hudgens, this particular look easily trickled down to the streets and into stores. Sadly, with the onset of fall and winter, boho chic for this season is fading to black and may be too stuck in last season’s closet for it to resurface for 2015.
Often paired with crop tops, distressed denim shorts, ankle booties, and a wide brim hat, fringe kimonos top off effortless looks with a featherweight touch. However, fringe has a habit of making its way back into our wardrobes with an element of out-of-date trendiness. Let’s avoid any wardrobe fads and axe the fringe hem before it makes it to the sale section of Urban Outfitters.
For next year’s music festival style, go for romantic patterns and diaphanous looks. Beaded, decorative fringe will also make a splash, wavering from the western feel of 2014. For an even more sleek finish, opt for suede in a deep, luxe hue adding decadence to your hit outfit.
Plan for next season and ditch the 2014 fringe kimono wardrobe fad. Fringe Kimonos are getting The Pink Slip.
