Fringe Is Back!

Native American tribes of the Plains and elsewhere had long created garments with fringe, which served as a type of repellent for rainwater. Fringe was a border or edge of hanging threads, cords, or strips, and was often found on garments made from suede, leather, and buckskin.

Also made popular in the 20’s with flapper style dresses, fringe went of like gangbusters.

Being from Texas, fringe has always been a staple of country wear and that has never gone out of style. The big hit of fringe in modern clothing began in the 60’s with the Hippie movement. As a child of the 70’s I grew up loving the long fringe suede jackets and vests that today are worth a pretty penny. 

Well, fringe is back! Yes, fashion trends come around every few decades sometimes, and this is definitely one of those trends that is back with gusto.
