Fringe Benefits

Ah, fringe! From flirtatious flappers to fierce & formidable Indians, you've outfitted some of the most iconic characters of the last 200 years. How fitting that you should linger and grace us with your presence. After all, what screams "Happy New Year!" better than some swingy, eye-catching fringe (besides your drunk "sort-of" friend after her 6th glass of Prosecco). I have to say, the photo below is what inspired me to post on this topic, as I think it would be the IDEAL addition to your NYE get-up.

Elements that make this necklace awesome: the chunky gold chain, the leather as a canvas, the uneven "notice me!" layers, and the "not too big, not too small" size. Seriously, this necklace has got it going on! And so can you if you desire. Visit coolsister's page on Etsy to find this work of art and more like it. Oh, and at only $65, you'll have something else to brag about other than how damn good you look.

It's best to keep this look understated, so pair each fringe-infused item with toned down basics to get the maximum effect. More funked-up fringe ideas below!
