At Murdoch’s we see a lot of fringe come and go from our women’s clothing departments. It’s a detail found in western fashion that gives a shirt or accessory a real, authentic feel – especially leather fringe. One of our favorite places to see it is on handbags. Check out these three fringe handbags that add a splash of traditional style to these basic fall outfits.
Fringe in the First Degree
Long, leather fringe tassels add a delicate detail on this oversized bag. It’s called the Reina Tote, made by STS Ranchwear. We like that they used a bold tribal print and a bold, bright red, but added the charm of fringe for a little feminine splash. Lastly, by placing the fringe on the side of the purse, it makes the fringe a fun detail as opposed to a full-on feature, making this bag great for someone dabbling in the trend. Plus, the heavy serape fabric balances a fall sweater nicely.
Fringe in the Second Degree
STS Ranchwear took a basic, common, practical purse shape and featured long, beautiful lines of fringe on the panels of the Annie Oakley Tote. It’s a strong fringe statement, but it’s still an accessory to the classic shape, premium leather, and flashy crimson red. (It comes in a toned-down tan leather as well.) It adds the perfect splash of color to jeans and neutral black and gray tops.
Fringe in the Third Degree
All-over fringe on the Lila Crossbody Fringe Bag makes this outfit. A basic, loose knit gray sweater, jeans and western boots create an unassuming outfit for everyday wear. Add a full fringe accessory like this one, and the outfit is immediately styled. If you’re a busy mom with kids looking for fast, easy ways to freshen up your look this fall, look no further than a fully-fringed bag like this one from STS Ranchwear.
