Tassels have moved out of burlesque and, hopefully, into everyone’s wardrobes. The options range from demure to flamboyant and offer a hit of movement to any outfit. This is my favorite sort of detail- the kind that you buy once and wear forever. It’s a shot of unexpected that never goes out of style.
Leather, silk or wool. High society sleek or ski chalet fun, tassels are swinging through fashion right now.
Did you pick up a sweater dress yet? Try highlighting the waist with a tasseled belt. It’s a great accent piece for shift dresses or skirts as well.
My sister has a vintage gold tassel necklace that I have coveted for years. It effortlessly makes jeans and a button down glamorously chic. Shorter chains are better with collared shirts while collarless dresses and tops can handle any length.
Tassels can be dramatic, vampy or preppy on shoes. Pick your mood and then your kicks!
