Want some fringe glamour? Tassels, tiers and fringes are adding star quality to everything from earrings to shoes this season. Or you can go the whole way with a shimmering gown that will bedazzle your guests

Words Libby Norman

Designers have gone a little bit crazy for fringes and tiers on gowns and accessories, while tassels are cropping up on everything from shoes to earrings. It’s a trend that doesn’t take itself too seriously – although seriously, what’s not to love about adding a wiggle to your walk or a shimmy to your instep on your wedding day? Here’s how to work that frivolous fringe effect to remind everyone that you are indeed the star of the show.
