White shirt Wednesday: Fringe for the urban cowgirl

Saddle up with swathes of soft suede this autumn in a 70s showdown of boho inspired revival for fall. From sliced and diced streamers to Pocahontas style pleats, the whole fashion pack has descended into a fringe frenzy – and we're jumping on the sartorial bandwagon too.

If the catwalk tells us anything, its that car wash cut-ups in an array of neutral tones have runway after parties looking more barn dance than backstage glitz and glamour. Shimmying straight off shows from Pucci to Gucci and onto the backs of glamazons sporting 70s revival suede midis and textured separates, we think it's safe to say, fashion has gone back country for fall.

With tasselled trims offering up an alternative to this season's retro mood, sporting an artful swish of fringe can put you in good favours with the fashion gods without stumbling on native Indian epithets.  The favoured flip side to time-warp flares and dream catchers, a long-line textured suede skirt celebrates the more favourable side of the 70s, offering up hints of groovy context without plunging into a fully-fringed affair.

A truly transitional trend making its way from New York to London, boho-admiring show-goers have embraced the look and taken it to the street, donning tiers of bohemian, hippy-luxe separates in an array of creative iterations from thigh high tasselled boots to slinky fringed trench coats. With high concept ensembles arriving front row with a overwhelming natural palette of peat, chocolate and caramel, hippy renaissance items were teamed with clean, fresh whites and leather for a decidedly grown-up feel to this bohemian rhapsody.

Offering up an eye-coaxing one off statement is this tan fringe ankle-sweeper from ThePerfext. A simple, stylish silhouette that ticks all of the aesthetic boxes, the conservative silhouette creates a balance between all-out fashion groupie and suave style voyeur. Teamed with fawn stiletto lace ups, frisky suede clutch, a multi-strand gold necklace and the timeless Hepburn shirt in 'Lion in winter', the trend set will certainly be tipping their cap in recognition of this cheeky little number.

Worn with all the irreverence of a reincarnated Woodstock veteran, make love not war with this casual ode to fancy-free fringe overloads for fall.
