Fringe is popular for its '70s appeal and freewheelin' nature. I prefer my fringe sleek — call it controlled fringe. Take for instance this Vanessa Bruno Fringe Hobo ($830). The dark palette is not an obvious choice and I like the short fringe. Rocker meets hippie. Sadly, this bag is not in my budget so I'm off to find a cheaper option . . .

This B. Makowsky Andalusia Shoulder Bag ($188) has the same short fringe and sleek vibe without the heavy price tag. The threaded detailing is a nice touch and I prefer the shorter handle.
