Fringed vacation tees had a moment on the Spring ’18 runways. The cheeky T-shirt made its first cameo at Vaquera, where it came complete with a surf-style logo. In Milan, Marco de Vincenzo showed the style as a swishy fringed tunic with a digitized sunset graphic, and in Paris at Loewe, for a collection based on the “traveling woman,” Jonathan Anderson whipped one up and emblazoned it with the label’s logo.
These designer incarnations aside, the shirts have humble beginnings. Souvenirs often bought at beach stalls and worn by spring breakers, fringed tees make for easy—and cheap—cover-ups. They’re also beloved by the DIY contingent, if Pinterest is anything to go by. (One tie-dyed, party-ready shirt we came across has a description that reads, “I will make one of these this summer!!”) But you don’t have to trawl boardwalks or Pinterest boards to find one of your own: Here, eight of the best fringe shirts to buy now.
