Catching craze

%image_alt%Fringed footwear is stomping back from the fashion graveyard. No longer adorning their ankles with glitzy diamonds or their Achilles’ heels with cute bow-tie ribbons, celebs like Leighton Meester and Kim Kardashian are sporting fringed high heels on the red carpet. Fashionistas pair them with jeans for a more casual look while others accessorize bohemian dresses to accent the style. While some believe fringed heels are ushering in an era of “global chic,” these stringy shoes are a little over the top. It seems as though the fashion industry is revamping the ’90s, drawing inspiration from Disney princesses like Pocahontas for upcoming “trends.”
