Embrace fashion’s fringing love affair with this tasselled sweater — a fool-proof choice for nailing the boho trend, says womenswear editor Charlene Barton
Fringing was one of the biggest hits on both the spring/summer and autumn/winter catwalks this year. A tassel here, a swish of shredded suede there: call it a bohemian rhapsody, but this is a trend there’s no escaping from. From Proenza Schouler to Burberry Prorsum, designers flirted with eyelash-like embellishment to offer a fluttering finish to Seventies-inspired silhouettes. Enter Limited Edition’s cream knitted sweater. A great transition piece, wear now with denim for festivals or as a holiday cover-up. Adopt an edgier attitude come September by adding leather trousers and heels, draping a rich burgundy wrap around your shoulders for instant drama. If in doubt, look to Olivia Palermo and Kate Bosworth who’ve given the trend serious it-girl status.
