I've seen this style of fringe skirts all over the internet for awhile now but was alway skeptical to buy one because they usually come in faux leather. But after seeing this skirt at Forever 21 I was finally convinced to purchase it because the fringe was made out of cotton. I think the cotton version of this skirt is more comfortable and casual compared to the leather ones. I wish I could of worn it when I went to watch "The Great Gatsby" so that I could be part of the roaring 20's vibe but bought it too late. I love how I can dress this skirt up for night or dress it down w a chambray to keep it casual!
