Ask your resident Instagram-loving Tweeter — fringe and ponchos are in. Gone is the idea of a poncho being just a toss-on-and-go garment. Now, you can dress it up with a belt, experiment with plaids and tweeds, or choose one with long fringe. Wear them with boots (make matching boot cuffs!) or dress it up with heels. It’s a new must-have for cold weather fashion, and an accessory that’s sure to get more use than traditional cardigans.
Not sure what to get the girl that has plenty of knit hats and scarves? Consider a wrap or poncho, fringed or not, for her to accessorize. The good news is that this new trend extends beyond young women and is versatile for women of all ages. Use neutral tones for the more fashion-forward type, or play up a bright color palette with stripes or different stitches.
If a pattern doesn’t call for fringe, but you’d like to add it, we’ve got a tutorial for how to make and attach fringe.
