Vintage 80d Fringe Leather Jacket. Fringe (the decorative trim on clothing) has made a huge comeback in fashion. You can spot it being used in a variety of styles, from rugged western suede jackets, to glamorous party dresses. Fringe returned to fashion in the 1950’s, it took on a more rebellious edge. Leather biker jackets began to feature fringed detailing- the Hell’s Angels motorcycle jackets and gloves were frequently embellished with it.

At the same time, Elvis Presley’s fringe jackets became part of his signature look. Fringe was also a fashionable trim for silver screen divas such as Rita Hayworth. In 1952, she stunningly wore a gown covered entirely in sequins and fringe.

Fringe styles came full circle in the 60’s and 70’s, when many designers became inspired by the original Native American fringe, as well as styles from Africa.

Yves Saint Laurent created two fringe-filled collections in 1967, and many celebrities wore fringed jackets and dresses in suede.

It became an especially iconic look for Cher, who incorporated fringe into both her casual and eveningwear. Who could forget the outrageous fringed gowns she has worn in performances and music videos?
