A Fresh Take On Minimalism.
I love building an outfit around one specific piece, so obviously when I got this Fringed Oversized-Tee I immediately knew that my look would be based around it. There’s something about adding a little bohemian flair to an outfit that just always feel right to me, but when it comes onto fringe, people instantly think Cowboys, The Great Gatsby or Music Festivals. Luckily for us fringe has shaken its way back into fashion and the trend has gone from casual to seriously chic.
I personally think fringe looks the most chic on black and white ensembles, because it allows the detailing to stand out in an understated way. Still, I didn’t want to look like I just came out of an ‘Old Western Movie’ so I stuck to a monochromatic look. The Fringed-Oversized-Tee took the usual Basic-White-T to a whole new level, as the fringe acts a subtle statement that adds garnish and movement to a look.
If not worn correctly fringe can easily widen one’s figure, and since my top was both oversized and fringed I went with a fitted, distressed denim pant to help balance off the look by keeping it tailored and sleek. & in case you haven’t realized by now, I’m a firm believer in the less is more mantra; it makes things uncomplicated and classic [not to be confused with boring or easy]. TRUST ME…going the simpler route actually forces you to be more creative—the focus is on fewer pieces, so you have to find a way to make those pieces shine.
One fringe piece is usually enough of a statement, but since I did opt to stick to an all-white palette I jazzed up my look with my accessories; a chunky gold necklace, neon yellow handbag and animal print heels which updated the look with graphic contrast. Think of it as a fresh take on minimalism.
