Throughout history fringe on clothing has been a symbol of the liberation. It first became a fashion feature in the 1920s when, for the first time ever, women’s dresses sat above the knee. This scandalous trend saw the introduction of the fringe to add length and create the illusion of a more modest style!
Whilst we are not so hung up about showing a bit of flesh nowadays, we do love the flirty and fun nature of this flapper inspired trim and wear it to emulate that glamorous and exciting era.
In the 1960s, young hippie Americans who were keen on making a stand about civil rights and oppressed minorities, began wearing fringe to show their support for the Native American causes. This trend has filtered down to bohemian style wedding dresses which are popular for their whimsical and laid back feel.
We take a look at at some fabulous wedding dresses with fringe, showing you the different ways you can rock this look!
Styled with a 1920s inspired cap veil, this stunning lace fish gown with a short fringe trim, offers a subtle and unique approach to a fringed frock.
This satin gown with a dramatic fringe trimmed back is accessorised with a simple bouquet and bold 1920s style makeup, creating a striking and glamorous look.
The delicate beaded trim on this dress follows the geometric lines of the sleeves and back creating an almost cape like affect.
One of the most classic ways of wearing fringe is in the form of a tiered skirt, like this beautiful gown. Statement flowers in the hair create a bohemian vibe!
If subtle isn’t the way you roll, this full-of-fringe gown proves less isn’t always more! The stylised yoke on this stunning lace wedding dress imitates that of a cowboy’s fringe jacket. This super cool look is styled with a white leather belt to complete the look.
Short wedding dresses also look fab with fringe and are great for shimmying the night away in. They also make great dresses which can be worn again!
If you’re worried that a long fringe will get in the way, tiers of short trims are an elegant and effective way of embracing this trend.
