It seems to have happened overnight, the way that a lot of good trends creep up on us. If you haven’t embraced Western style yet, you may want to start now. Late last winter, the NYFW runways promised a budding trend, with everything from fringed jackets and bags to oversize hats, Aztec geometric prints in heavy blanket-style sweaters, ponchos, and, of course, boots. The look is cozy and warm, big on leathers and suedes—in other words, perfect for fall and winter. And where fashion goes, jewelry is already a step ahead, ready to accessorize the latest trend. Fringe is nothing new in jewelry, from Art Deco’s tasseled looks to the cascading diamond statement necklace. But that doesn’t mean new styles aren’t being created to accompany the latest styles—and I’ve rounded up a few favorites. Some spot-on and affordable, making it easy for your customers to jump onboard, others more classic, coincidental, and competely covetable (with price tags to match). So stock up! Your store is bound to see some serious fringe benefits from these jewels.
