When someone says the word “fringe,” I admit I’m the first to cringe. Thoughts of growing up in the South (yes, I’m from Alabama) with fringed leather vests and shirts come to mind. I’m sorry, but most of the time, that’s just wrong. However, today I’ve been inspired by Jules Smith, an accessories brand founded and designed by Gina Nigrelli-Smith: Fringe is great! And totally happening.
With an aesthetic ranging from ’70s boho look to ’80s glam, Nigrelli-Smith is an extraordinaire with vintage-inspired necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Modern, indie and — of course — attention grabbing. Her unique pieces have caught the attention of the hottest celebs while still remaining obtainable for any aspiring fashionista. The prices range from $95 to 60, all available at NeimanMarcus.com. (Here you’ll also find more pieces, including the ones seen in this post.)
If you’re like me and you’ve detested the word “fringe,” get your head out of that old cedar closet because it’s time to add a little fringe excitement into your life. And you can do it with Jules Smith.
