Fringe, it seems, is everywhere these days. From boots to jackets, from swimsuits to pretty much everything Amanda made on Project Runway’s last season. The last time fringe flooded the fashion world in any big way was in the 1980s — and many of those looks would fit right in during the latest fringe frenzy.
