Fringe, our old 1970’s BFF, is coming back with a bang this season, and for a good reason. It dances to and fro, it’s fun to twirl around in, and it adds an old-fashioned, yet unique look to any outfit, especially in the winter when most people are covered from head to toe trying to stay warm. Get a fringe jacket, poncho, skirt, or even a fringe winter bag and join in on the fun that fringe is bound to bring to your long, cold days.
It’s not enough to stay warm and cozy during the cold winter months. You have to do so in style.

Coming in any color, you can think of; this funky accessory will make you stand out in amongst the crowd of people all opting for boring beanies and earmuffs.
