Call me fringe shy. You wouldn't believe it from this photo series, but I am. I hate it when my outfit walks into a room before I do, or in this case, sashays into a room before I do. Can one love a clothing item but not the attention it brings? What I've discovered is that with a few steps, you can take a wild skirt and turn it into a inconspicuous totally normal-seeming clothing item. 1) Layer it. It's hot outside, if there was a time to not layer, it would be now. But nothing says business like a jacket, or in this case a button down possum-ing as one. 2) Add stripes. This step is just a strong suggestion 3) Add great shoes. Have a wild new shoe you want to debut? I just got these from Circus. They have what you want in a shoe - wearability as in matching what's in your closet, style, obvi, and comfort, if you must. The louder the better. See, now everyone is looking at your shoes. It's that easy. Fringe just got office approved. I know I work in the biz, but still, I bet you too can find a way to feel all-eyes-on-fringe.
