The bloodshot-eyes of fashion girls nationwide have been following the Style.com slideshows of the spring 2015 shows like ravenous hawks zeroing-in and swooping down on unexpecting prey. In this case, they prey is Proenza Schouler and I am the haughty, huffy hawk. Proenza was a showcase of American sportswear with unconventional touches (a punch of python here, an unexpected Prince of Wales check there, fringe shimmying about like it was the 1920s or a hoedown in Montana - your pick). And here is the great takeaway of what's happening on the runways now: it's just as easy peezy lemon squeezy to copy it now. And hey, we all want instant gratification like Veruka Salt, don't we?
Well, this Outfix takes the fabulous fringe from Proenza Schouler and tones it the eff down so you look like a human being and not like this dog. Take another page from Proenza and pair fringe with more fringe unabashedly - a fringe clutch in an opposite shade pairs quite nicely! Then, last steps: add a borrowed-from-the-boys plaid shirt (roll up the sleeves, unleash a few buttons to show off that decolletage or lack thereof), pair with the most killer of all killer heels: Aquazarra's snakeskin stunner, and add a bit of sparkle with Dannijo's blinged-out necklace. While you're at, look at how It-girl du jour Olivia Palermo paired plaid with fringe for a little "I really can do this and look freakin' cool" affirmation. Wam! Bam! You got a look.
Also, in case you didn't know what a fringe benefit is: here ya go !
