While I was in Copenhagen and Paris last month, I couldn't help but notice that some of the most stylish ladies were carrying handbags adorned with fringe. The fringed bags I saw were small and looked oh so chic whether it was a crossbody bag or a small clutch. The smaller sized bags worked well showcasing the beautiful fringe without overpowering the gal who was wearing it. Coach's new Creative Director Stuart Vevers had the right vision with the Coach DAKOTAH Small Fringe Flap Crossbody ($725 at Coach). I adore the chain detail and the rich leather look.
Here are more of my picks for fringe bags:
