Trendspotting: Tassels

Feb 24, 2011

Being a simple girl at heart, I usually shy away from embellishments, but I am just mad for tassels.  There’s something about these adornments that makes them look subtle despite their flounce.  

This season DvF added tassels to handbags, Chloe used them to trim dresses and OdlR dangled them from women’s earlobes.  But this trend isn’t confined to the runway.  In fact, tassels trickled down to the lower price points with surprising speed.  Proving that you can’t keep a good thing to yourself.

 

Find these pieces on Polyvore.

While I love the Dolce Vita sandals above, these tasseled flats from Simply Soles also caught my eye. Want to go a little wild with your footwear?  These magenta loafers and these bright orange sandals should do the trick. 

If you need something more substantial than that tiny Rebecca Minkoff pouch, this box bag from TopShop should suit your needs.  And if you’re in the market for something a bit trendier, this taupe saddle bag would be great addition to your wardrobe at just $29.

Personally, I’ll be limiting this trend to my accessories, but there are some great jewelry piece available if you’re so inclined.  Ann Taylor has a wonderful multi-tasseled bib necklace in bronze.  And this long necklace from House of Harlow is reminiscent of a 1920s flapper girl.

Tassels are a great way to add a little something extra to your wardrobe.  So whether you choose a scarf, a sandal, a wristlet, or a key fob, add something tasseled to your wardrobe.

    I want to buy every single thing you listed, my wallet needs to run and hide.

    (sort of)Threadjack: I know some people have been asking about scarves and how to style them– if you're a Gilt member, check out the Emilio Pucci sale today/tomorrow. While their scarves are still way over my price range, they are all styled differently, so you can get some good ideas there.

    I love the scarf!
