Summer’s out of the way and it’s time to look ahead to the party season…and what could more epitomise a sense of festive fun than a fringed mini dress? Beloved by the flappers of the 1920s and never out of style since, they’re available in all sorts of lengths and finishes but today we’ve trawled the best online retailers and emerged with our five favourite fringed mini dresses!
Red Fringe Mesh Strappy Mini Bodycon Dress – £38, ASOS
Nothing exudes confidence more than a red dress – especially one as fluid as this bodycon dress by ASOS Collection which moves along with you! It’s fully-lined but made from a semi-sheer mesh finished with all-over fringing. The V-necked dress has thin spaghetti straps that cross over to form a racer back. A real attention-grabber!
If you believe party dresses should shimmer, we’re not about to argue – and this V by Very fringed mini dress does just that. The black body of the dress is embellished all over with heavy long sparkling silver tassels that swing around the simple design which has a plunge neckline and a choker collar. Perfect for the party season!
We love the vibrant colour of this cobalt blue bodycon dress from Pretty Little Thing. This figure-hugging mini dress is super-flattering with a bandeau neckline and bands of fringing from the top to the hem. The dress – which dips at the back and fastens with the zip – is also available in black, if you like the style but would prefer it in a different colour.
Sequin Fringed Cold Shoulder Dress – £30 (was £75), Jaded London
A rather unorthodox combination of textures now – this sequin fringed mini dress by Jaded London has a stretchy grey jersey base cut in a cold shoulder style. Long fringes – each of them covered in matching sequins in pink, yellow and white – suspend in rows from chest-height to the hem, as well as around the sleeve edges.
Yellow Suedette Fringed Slip Dress – £5, Everything 5 Pounds
We finish with an astonishing bargain: no, you’re not seeing things, this mustard-coloured suedette fringed slip dress really is available for just a fiver! Made from a polyester-elastane fabric with a suede-type finish, it has a long band of fringing all around the top edge. It’s also available in black, so you can get your hands on one of each for a mere tenner!
