Fringing is massive right now. Here’s how you should wear it.

From boho raffia baskets with whiskery edges to 1920s flapper-style silk numbers - fringing has had a revamp for 2022. Seen on the catwalks at Proenza Schouler and Chloe’s SS22 shows back in February, it is currently making its way onto the high streets in time for summer. Whether you are looking for a high-end tasselled investment piece or just an on-trend affordable nod – we’ve rounded up 12 buys from around the internet to get your fringe fix.
