Summer’s all about deep set necklines, breezy silhouettes, skirts that are not afraid to ride an inch higher and colours that instantly pop.

Combat the drowsiness of the heat by cashing in on some fringe benefits. Nope, we aren’t getting into your cropped mop and blunt bangs — ‘tis the season to play with sexy tassels.


Take inspiration from a recent outing of our own desi diva, Priyanka Chopra, who went fringe-hot in her deliciously blue dress. From your glamour ridden college farewell to a day spent scouring street markets for style steals — you can add cascading fringes to your outfit in varied ways.

Styling it right: If going for a black fringe dress, here’s how to look like a diva.

"Pay attention to your footwear, which should be sleek and in your accessories, go for a dash of black and platinum. Straight hair left loose and nude, clean makeup with a signature smokey eye will help you ace the look," says stylist Vikram Seth.

Vintage wonderful
Flapper flirtatiousness takes from drop-waist dresses that ruled fashion in the roaring 1920s. Fringes go back to this era, which has had a long-lasting impact on style through the ages. Turn your all-glam soiree into your own personal MET gala and go the vintage-infused fringe way. Complete with a pink pearl necklace or a cute jewelled headbang, your look is going to be hard to match!
