Fashion Month’s love affair with bangs has become a full-blown street style phenomenon, with unconventional variations sparking joy in the hearts of showgoers from New York to Paris. The new rule is no rules: the ’70s feathered shags, micro-mini chops, electric blue ringlets.

It kicked off in New York when Alexander Wang sent models in freshly-cropped surfer shags down the runway—a look that Alexandra Elizabeth proved just as versatile on the streets of Milan, with her new tousled bangs tucked charmingly under a black beret. Versace’s customized runway fringe was another model off-duty favorite, with Edie Campbell pairing her new face-framing cut with a classic leather moto jacket and indigo denim—matching hardback book in hand—for a Parisian stroll. Street style darlings are imparting their own subversive takes on the trend—perfectly evidenced by Nell Kalonji’s forehead-grazing flounce of aqua curls, which provided another mood-boosting lift during the last leg of Paris shows. Here’s to a few more days of inspiring spins on fashion’s favorite fringes.
