This or That: Cutouts VS. Fringe

It’s all in the details! This week we are highlighting two of THE key elements for this season: Cutouts and Fringe. They both graced the runways for fall, and are equally chic, yet edgy! Here are just a few ways we are loving them…


THIS: This stylishly placed cut out adds a little interest and trend to a basic tee without being too risqué for casual daytime wear.

THAT: This draped jacket not only hits on the fringe trend for fall but also the green color trend. You can go a little more western by pairing with light denim and booties or dress it up with sleek black pants and square toe shoes.




THIS: If you’re looking for a fresh take on the cutout detail that isn’t the “cold shoulder” trend we’ve been back and forth on for seasons, then this may be the dress for you! The open neckline at the décolleté is flattering on so many shapes and sizes. But your eye is still pulled down to look up and down the body, creating balance which is always the goal! Pair this with a tall, sleek, brown leather boot. Chic!


THAT: We are all about the fringe this season, and love the nod to the western/70s vibe. It’s perfect in clothing, but perhaps try it in your accessories…like this white Chloe number. Yes, white after Labor Day is OKAY even with your accessories! Just pair it with those warm, buttery neutrals! This beauty can easily dress up OR down any fall look.




THIS: A sweater that gives you that “oh so cozy, but stylish” vibe. We love how this piece exudes that classic chic feel while showing just a touch of shoulder.

THAT: The fringe trend is a fun one indeed! If you are feeling unsure where to start with this trend, go for a layering piece. This one is a knit, which will also be cozy for the cooler temps ahead. We love that it has a belt at the waist to pull you in and strengthen your shape through the waistline!
