Want to add a little flourish to your Fall fashions? Then consider the benefits of the fringe. Yes, the salute to 70s style is back big time.

The classic fringed vest is perfect with denim. Wear with a sleek sweater or crisp shirt or go all out in boho style, with a ruffled blouse beneath. This version from Urban Outfitters.
Fringes will frequent footweat this fall. These mocassins are from American Eagle:
