Fashion Trend in the Making: Tassels


Blame it on the proliferation of home design shows, but among the trimmings that are making their way from furniture and curtains to clothing and accessories are tassels. The key to this trend is moderation — no one needs a sea of tassels dangling from a dress. Opt for shoes, belts, necklaces, handbags, and other accessories adorned with tassels, or tops with tassels around the collar for the most on-trend expression of this adornment. Plus, keeping your tassels to a minimum also means you can play up the texture of this fun trimming by going for fun, bright, or unexpected colors.

See below for some ways to incorporate this look into your wardrobe this season.
