Whenever we see a celebrity carrying a fringe handbag, they usually pair them with jeans, a sundress or sandals for that laid-back casual look. So it’s actually refreshing to see this trend in a more dressed up setting, such as this party look worn by Manhattan socialite Tinsley Mortimer:

Tinsley Mortimer pulls off the formal fringe look well and she does it again at a New York charity gala. This time she makes it more elegant, pairing her silver fringe clutch with an electric blue dress, classic gray pumps and a silver cross necklace:

If you’re a fan of the fringe and thinking of ways to dress it up, take a cue from Miss Mortimer and try a style like this one that you can find at Amazon:

The plated metal mesh instantly gives serious sparkle and the crystal accents are guaranteed to lend glamour to any outfit on its own. And of course, the clutch comes with a detachable long chain so you can convert it into a shoulder bag if you want to keep your hands free.
