Daytime Casual: A Fringe Top

This fringe top from ASOS is an amped-up version of your basic white tee. Keep things low-key and casual by styling the top with a pair of cuffed denim shorts and strappy flat sandals. Accessorize with several bracelets - these woven friendship bracelets and elephant-adorned bangle make for a cute and eclectic mix. Lastly, slip on a pair of cat-eye sunglasses to complete this comfy, yet trendy look.

Beach Chic: A Fringe Cover-Up

Play up a summery, bohemian vibe with a stylish beach ensemble. Obviously, you can use any swimsuit you have, but for this outfit I went with a brightly-colored pink bikini. Add a dip-dyed cover-up with fringed detailing on the bottom, as well as a pair of simple flip flops. Store all your summer essentials in an adorable seahorse print tote, then accessorize with a pair of circle sunnies.
