On the fringe

The hippy-dippy trend may be on the way out, but at least one vestige of this carefree look is here to stay - fringe. Nothing says happy-go-lucky like a nice fringe that floats and swings as you dance and spin on prom night, so don't be afraid to embrace this fun, fancy-free trend.

Whether it's on a dress, a handbag or even a pair of shoes, you can't go wrong with a little bit of fringe. For inspiration, have a look at what Rihanna wore to the 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards, where she was the surprise performer. The runway version of this Versace frock featured splashes of bright color, but Rihanna opted for a white style when she sang alongside Jennifer Nettles. Of course, she kept the most exciting aspect of the form-fitting dress - its fringed bodice - totally intact, letting the little strips sway as she moved her body to the rhythm.

If you plan on tearing up the dance floor, fringe is your best friend. Embrace this grin-inducing style, and you'll be sure to look hippy-chic at prom this year.
