There is something about the frayed edge trend that I really like, so I am on board with the look for this summer. Last year I cut a pair of jeans into shorts, and they became my 'go-to' weekend bottoms. There is nothing really novel about cut-off jeans for shorts though.

Last week I let down the hems on a pair of new white flared jeans. The length is good, but I think I will crop them when the weather gets warmer because I love ankle baring styles, and I believe a cropped flare will showcase recently acquired interesting footwear! I have a pair of straight leg jeans that I wear rolled (they are too short otherwise) that I am thinking about chopping to get a fray on these as well.

These are do-it-yourself fray projects, vs purpose bought fringe. I'm tempted by the fringey-Channelesque tweed jackets, and I tried on a pair of flat, fringed sandals (very good at hiding bunions!) - but haven't found the perfect-for-me items. I'm intrigued that I like fringe so much, whereas don't like distressing at all! I'm also wondering if the fringe trend will have legs beyond this season?

In the interim, I plan to embrace fringe as my fun trend for 2016.

Team fringe? Are you a do-it-yourselfer or purpose bought? Do you think you will be wearing your fringe beyond one fashion season?
