This black fringe number was originally a dress. The inspiration photo gave me an idea though - why not remove the solid dress underneath and wear the fringe overlay portion over a black cami and shorts? The result is a new and (honestly more comfortable!) way to wear the crochet/fringe look. I'm thinking about trying it over a swim suit or a bright color, inspired by the shopping options below. Do you have any crochet pieces you can try it with?
