How to wear fringe if your in your 20s
Life as the fresh-faced ingénue may be a charmed one, but it also leaves plenty of room for sartorial error. Just remember, style mistakes you make now will one day be unearthed as a perpetual onslaught of ‘before they were famous’ gems.
Our solution? Get it right from the word go. But don’t translate that as ‘play it safe’, instead play it smart. Fringe isn’t for the timid – it’s the uniform of feisty cowgirls and, everyone’s favourite, Dolly Parton.
With Dolly in mind, turn straight to the highest of heels with Mulberry’s Moccasin Bootie in ink blue, the it-colour of s/s10. This is footwear to frolic in, just pair with the skinniest of jeans or the most streamlined of silhouettes to let the boots do all the talking (but then again, how could they not). Admittedly blue suede shoes aren’t for everyone, though with Elvis as the original fan how can you go wrong?
