Trendspotting: Tied in Knots
Mar 2, 2011
Last week, I shared my love of tassels. This week, it’s knots.
Why am I so enamored with these embellishments? I’m not entirely sure, but I think it’s because they make a piece interesting without being overwhelming.
I’ve never cared much for large prints and I shy away from shiny fabrics. Knots and tassels appeal to me because they add something architecturally without sacrificing simplicity. Take the dress at center, for example. It is a lovely color, but without the knot, it’s just another sheath. With the knot, it has a subtle drama that makes it really special.
If you’re looking for an embellishment that doesn’t overpower, a piece tied in knots may be for you.
