Elegant Plus Editor's Picks:  Fringed Looks for Size 12 +

Full Retail Prices Listed: Check Links for Current Sales & Mark Downs

All Editor's Picks clothing featured is hand- selected by the Elegant Plus Fashion Editor from our extensive network of fashion business partnerships and available at date of posting.  Please be advised that popular selections can sell out quickly, especially at trendier Fast Fashion outlets. Options are available in all size ranges, although we specialize in hard-to-find sizes 12 and over. 

Elegant Plus Sizing Report  Luxury level plus-size designer clothing is increasingly available, but still difficult to find outside the major department stores.  More moderately priced contemporary designers, diffusion lines, and capsule collections are getting much easier to find and shop.

Fringes started making a style impact with the immensely popular kimono topper trend that is still going strong.   Embraced by curvy fashionistas of all ages and varying budgets, looks can range from under $50 to several hundred as the trend comes into full bloom for Fall 2015.

The more delicate deco inspired fringed piano shawl fashions from the 1920's are still in play, especially for special occasion wear.  Mix luxurious burnt out silk velvet poncho tops with down to earth denim for a casual vibe.  Summer of 2015 saw heavy 1970's influence in festival and beach fashion with trend setters sporting everything from fringed maxi dresses to fringed bikini tops.  The American West style influences of the last few years are adding to the mix for the coming seasons.

This fall look for fringed leather and suede in everything from jackets to accessories such as shoes, boots, and bags.  Both the folkloric trend and Western influenced trends are incorporating fringes, and both genuine and faux leather, suede, and fur are figuring prominently in both.

Ponchos and vests are two the most important style items to add to wardrobes this year.  The leading edge of the trend was seen last winter for both cold weather and resort fashion, and both are set to become more important in coming months. 

Ruana wraps in traditional, fringed blanket patterns are an easy way to add an extra layer of warmth, color, and pattern to fall looks. This look is especially appealing for career women who want to add a bohemian twist, and can be worn over more tailored jackets and outerwear.

The voluminous nature of ponchos and ruanas require slim leggings or skinny jeans for the most chic balance of proportions, while the newer palazzo pant trend works well with vests and some of the more flowing open kimono toppers.

Filmy, chiffon versions can be worn over form fitting camis, crop tops, or bikini tops for peek a boo play and will continue to be seen in parts of the country with warmer climates or resort destinations as we move into the colder months of the calendar.   Heavier wovens, knits, wools, and even leather and fur versions

For special occasion wear fringed hems on dresses and skirts adds movement and verve, especially when dancing.  Look for both Art Deco dance the Charleston and groovy disco boogie nights options with looks to suit both traditionalists and those who live for the latest trends.  Fringed kimono toppers in Asian patterns, richly embroidered, beaded or in luxury fabrics such as silk or burn out velvets are creating distinctive evening pant suit tops for a wide variety of fall and holiday parties and occasions.  The key to wearing these loose, flowing toppers is to keep an under layer form fitting.

Color palettes are earthy and neutral with a hint of spice added in rich, burnt orange and deep, blood red.  Midnight blue and black provide foils, while sandy beige and doe skin brown are moving us away from the optic whites of summer.
