Spring accessories: fringe benefits

March 16, 2010 |  6:57 am

Watch out for flying fringe this spring. Those thin leather tassels are hanging from handbags, sandals, even earrings this season, evoking a 1970s haute hippie vibe.

Accessories are the best way to wear the trend so they remain a detail and don't take an outfit into costume territory or make you look like you stuffed your clothes through a paper shredder.

Here are a few fun fringe items in stores now:


Clockwise from top left: Mulberry fringe ankle bootie $695/Mulberry, Vita fringe bracelet $308/Vita, Gap fringe hobo bag $150/Gap, Kohls fringe sandals $31.99/Kohls.
