Scour the covers and pages of any magazine on news stands now and you’re sure to see fringe. Fringe has taken over as this year’s go-to detail for everything from handbags, to dresses, to shirts, and even shoes. Here at The Orchid Boutique, we’re certainly seeing our fair share of fringe as well. We spotted a perfect collage by Who What Wear featuring some top celebrities donning fringe embellished frocks, including Zoe Saldana and Camilla Belle. While the fashion blog compares these styles to those reminiscent of the roaring 1920’s when flapper dresses ruled every woman’s wardrobe, we love the modern versions of dresses and tunics with fringe.

What’s so great about fringe, besides the perfect sway with every step, is it’s unique appeal for drama. Add a little dramatic detail to a classic silhouette and you’ve found the perfect combination. We love the versatility of this detail; fringe can be elegant, or edgy, or anything in between. At The Orchid Boutique we have an excellent selection of fringed swimwear, but about to cover-up that swimwear along the beach or out at the bar. Don’t worry, we’ve got you ‘covered’.

Out of our fringed frocks we have a new favorite that we can’t help but share with you. The Ava Beach Taupe Poncho by L*Space Swimwear provides that simple silhouette, adds fringe detailing and creates a truly sophisticated ensemble. This fringe swings and sways at the perfect moments with every step you take. A round boat neck-line compliments this frock’s shorter hemline. Fringed poncho sleeves create drama and are the perfect length. Cover up with this fringed poncho along the white sands or throw it on your lunch and a fruity cocktail with a great view.
