Be inspired by separates trimmed with frothy fringing at Gucci, statement gowns with extra swish factor at Givenchy and floor-sweeping strands at Roberto Cavalli as faux fur isn’t the only texture to be seen in this season.

Fringing in all forms adds instant impact to party-wear and accessories, while fringe detailing on sweaters, jackets and cuffs gives daytime casuals added interest. It’s a trend that always comes round again so if you pick up a bargain in the sales you’ll still be pulling it out in seasons to come.

Style tip: If you don’t fancy shimmying your way into a room this season, try a fringed accessory to add texture to your outfit. Look for bags and earrings with fringing to work the trend in a subtler way.
