Swinging fringe is an icon of fun, flirty fashion. From ’20s flapper dresses to ’70s hippie swagger, there’s just something about the way it drapes and sways. Versace presented an army of metallic fringed beauties on the Spring/Summer 13 runway—and we just couldn’t get past the long medusa chain necklace.

We saved ourselves a few grand and figured out a way to DIY it. This project is a shimmering stunner, so get going! Pair with a simple tee or tank and let the compliments flow as easy as your fringe.
