It’s that time of year again. The night’s may be drawing in and the days getting shorter and darker, but they are also filled with sparkle, shimmer and…fringes. Autumn sees the return of two of the most glamorous programmes on television, Downton Abbey and Strictly Come Dancing, and with the return of these programmes we also see the welcome re-emergence of the flapper dress, and those fabulous fringes.
Flapper dresses, the standout piece of 1920s style, is a perennial party favourite, with those long fringes perfect for those who love to standout on the dance floor. This is highlighted no better than on Strictly Come Dancing, where Alison Hammond, Caroline Flack, Pixie Lott and Frankie Bridge have already shown of their 1920s style in the first few episodes of the series.
Where the celebrities lead, the High Street is sure to follow, and this is certainly true this year. As we head closer to the festive party season, Phase Eight, M&Co, Biba at House of Fraser and Miss Selfridge have all unveiled dresses and skirts which have definite fringe appeal.
Will you be unveiling your inner 20s It Girl come Christmas party season?
