Steal the Look for Less: Fringe with Benefits

There is no way you can turn a page or a webpage with out seeing some type of fringe. Celebrities are now wearing the spring trend. Whitney Port was seen at "N.Y.C. Assouline book bash fĂȘting Coca-Cola" (people.com) rocking a fringe dress with sequin embellishments.

The fun thing about fringe dresses is that they can be worn to special occasions or totally dressed down. Whatever the occasion you can look like a celebrity for less.


Fringe Benefits

Take a note from Whitney and dress up your arms with bangle bracelets. Bangles give a tribal feeling to your fringe dress. Do try printed bangles that have tribal prints or colors like the Forever21 Painted Pressed Bangles (first on the right...$6.80) or the Aldo GALLUZZI bangles (last on the right...$18). To go with the tribal them do sandals that have bead work on them. If your willing to shell out some cash do the Cauzzie Aztec Beaded Sandals (bottom right....$175). These shoes are not only perfect because of the bead work but because they have a little tassel on them that really gives the whole tribal vibe to it. These small details really stand out and make a difference. If your looking for a total steal the Qupid Cairo At Akira (the middle pair...$50) are perfect to pull the whole tribal look. You want to pick beadings that stand out like Whitney did. Don't worry, if your not a high heel girl do a flat sandal that has beading work on it.

Glam the whole look together by adding a glitter bag. Do pick a bag that matches the dress or your accessories. When doing a white dress still with a silver bag unless doing a gold jewelry. Black dress....black bag.

Have fun with this look. Don't be afraid to play with accessories and even play around with some feathered accessories, like a feathered earrings and hair clips.
