I can't be sure why this trend is coming back... But surprisingly, I like it! A lot of 70's vibes going on with fringed jackets and such. I myself have wanted a fringed bikini for summertime. (Never have I ever said those words. I'm aware of how dumb it sounds.)
Maybe visuals are better than me trying to explain this:
See? Cute! If you agree, the first four are via forever 21 and the awesome jacket is free people.
On the hunt for more fringe!
