Well hello again! Lee here, and I’m so glad to be back here on Sugar & Cloth and super excited to be sharing a round-up of one of my favorite trends, FRINGE!
Now I’ll be honest, I’m not usually one to swoon over the latest must-haves or go nuts for fashion fads but fringe might just be an exception. It’s timeless, fun, perfect for twirling and for any summer events you might have on the horizon. Plus it’s made it’s way far outside the flower child festival grounds and into contemporary homes and closets everywhere.
Since fringe can pack a pretty powerful style punch, my approach is to keep it simple and adding just one item is really all you need to give an outfit or a room a swingy boho vibe….

Most of the time I, Lee, am content to be surrounded by lots of white, black and neutrals. But it seems around this time every year (and just about ALL year around Sugar & Cloth!) I get bit by the bright color bug (which I’ll gladly take over a mosquito any day!). The grass is greening up, the trees are bursting with blossoms, the annual spring flowers have sprouted and I want to participate in this fantastic compendium of color, and these are 14 bold and bright products you need this Summer!
The good thing is that it’s really easy to do! Just by adding one standout piece to a room, such as an amazing red chair, a sculptural pendant or a few fresh art prints you can bring the whole space to life. The same goes for your summer wardrobe too. It could be a great dress, a bright bag or even a swimsuit in a show stopping color that gives your closet the color injection it needs.
Maybe you’re way ahead of me, and are already a connoisseur of all things bright and bold, but if not, this little roundup of all the colorful goodies will get you on track for a seriously super summer!

I’m not exactly what you’d call “fancy” when it comes to my closet staples. As it turns out glue guns and paint pallets are my biggest audience on a day-to-day basis, and they aren’t too impressed with designer duds. I’m more of a “How many different tasks is this outfit equipped for?” kind of gal. To give you a better visual, we’ve created a mini photo parade on how to stay versatile while keeping cool and budget friendly in my two summer uniforms with Gap Styld.by!
I’m actually not joking about the parade part. We’ve got everything here today folks: flamingos, pineapple cups, emails, sequin hearts, cotton candy… the list goes on.
For those of you that loved my DIY gold foil brushstroke pillow, you’re in luck! You can now buy the kit to make your own tote bag version (or just keep on making those pillows!) with our DIY gold foil brushstroke kit in collaboration with Brit + Co! Best news yet? It’s less than $20 so you can make all of your friends grab one too for a very shiny craft night or afternoon brunch plans.
You can shop your kit here with custom color tote bags and all! Once you finish your project, be sure to tag it with #mysugarandcloth so we can follow along!
