Americans have been fringe-ing on and off for decades, from flappers, to westerns, to rock n roll stars and bohemians. And now it seems this timeless fad is back at it once again as fringe is now being re-donned by the modern American people, but this time near their ankle.
A trend I consider to be #2 on my most unnecessary trends of all-time list (#1 being the shoulder pad), I am perplexed as to why fringe keeps on coming back—the shoulder pad never really did and we all should feel thankful for that.
Don’t get me wrong I don’t hate fringe. I can even appreciate fringe in some capacities—there is the fringe bag, the fringe sweater, even the fringe bang. But, fringe denim? Is giving a classic American beauty like the jean a trendy haircut wise? . . . I guess we’ve all made our own fair share of questionable haircut decisions.
If you’re going to try a fad, like fringe, always do it for less. There’s nothing worse than getting an arguably ugly haircut than getting an expensive arguably ugly haircut. You feel me?
Here are a few more wallet friendlier options I have found that are still right on the ankle fringe trend no matter what your personal opinions may be about them.
