Tassels were once known strictly as an funky vintage accessory on an accent pillow or a horrible addition to an 80’s sweater you hope never to see again. Fortunately for us, the fashion gods have smiled upon us and found a way to incorporate this once cumbersome accessory into a fun addition to your everyday wardrobe.
Tassels have been seen in all types of accessories on both the runway and on the street. Let’s start with some fancy footwear- tassels on shoes are great because they can be both casual and chic. The black and white tassel sandals pictured below (far right and left) are both absolutely perfect for a casual day with friends or even for beach wear. In contrast, the tan sling-back heels in the middle are great to upgrade an outfit for something more sophisticated. These are perfect for work or for that interview you want to nail! If you like to wear flats at work, loafers are a great shoe that incorporates tassels as well.
If you’re more of a jewelry girl, the accessories pictures below are perfect to upgrade your outfit. The necklaces are bold and are great for a night out or with a simple v-neck and boyfriend jeans. The earrings make less of a statement but are still a great upgrade to your outfit. Wear them with a braid crown or your hair pulled back in order to showcase the tassel! Tassels make a perfect summer accessory.
Tassels are a great detail, but do make a statement. If you like the tassels, but are a little concerned they are too bold for you, try a bag with a tassel accessory- it’s a classic touch that will end up being a great investment bag.
Obviously we don’t recommend wearing all these fabulous accessories in one look- so pick which pieces you would like to get totally tasseled and wear one at a time. This is such a fun trend we are TOTALLY WAiSTEDD on- especially because the tassel will transcend from season to season. So go on ladies, get tousled for tassels!!!
