Some iconic trends refuse to go out of fash­ion and fringes are un­doubt­edly one of them. First, it was the flap­per dresses in the 1920s, then mu­sic big­gies like Elvis, Nancy Si­na­tra and Madonna who rocked the trend, and now celebri­ties are flaunt­ing the fringe fash­ion state­ment on the red car­pet.

We are lov­ing the come­back of this edgy yet el­e­gant style on both Hol­ly­wood and Bol­ly­wood di­vas — be it ac­tor Deepika Padukone’s se­quinned red num­ber for a film pro­mo­tion or Blake Lively’s black mini at an awards night. “Mu­sic has been a big in­spi­ra­tion this sea­son when it comes to style. From Bey­oncé and Ri­hanna to J Lo — women are re-in­vent­ing them­selves and fringes are a big part of what they choose to wear. Not sur­pris­ing, con­sid­er­ing this lit­tle de­tail adds so much glam­our,” says de­signer Nikhil Mehra.

De­signer Ur­vashi Kaur says fringes help clean up red car­pet clut­ter. “They are a lovely way to work in a cool quo­tient into a red car­pet look. Dif­fer­ent lengths and tex­tures add drama and move­ment. The styling can make you go from rock chic and fu­tur­is­tic to pol­ished.”

De­signer Nida Mah­mood says Pee-Cee’s Peo­ple’s Choice Awards style is the way to go. “The sil­hou­ette is sim­ple, but the fringe is the rea­son it stands out,” she says.
