Tassel Time

Not since the choker necklace made it's triumphant and minimalistic comeback a few years ago have I been as into a trend as I am into tasseled jewelry right now. I want them dangling from everywhere and adorning everything—and not just jewelry, actually. Tassels on sandals and summer dresses also feels particularly fresh and fun to me right now, and a nice, playful bit of relief from the minimalistic stuff I'm usually drawn to wearing.

While I think there are some tasseled pieces that can feel timeless (they've been adorning leather loafers since forever, basically) this is a great excuse to pick out a few pieces of costume jewelry or high street dresses you can wear to death now, and not feel bad about retiring before next summer. I'm particularly smitten with BaubleBar's array of tasseled jewelry, especially the earrings (like these). For a version that feels a bit more upscale, these chain tassels from J.Crew are sophisticated with just the right amount of sparkle.

For a little inspiration that proves just how classy and cool a flash of tassels can be, I grabbed this retro image of Lee Radziwill I found on Pinterest. With her fresh face and loose updo she looks so polished. (I know that's a lot of adjectives, but they all seem to work, no?)

With wedding / weekend getaway / vacation / humidity season in full swing (hey, sometimes you just have to put your hair in a ponytail and throw on some big earrings, no?) my shopping list is all about tasseled tunics, swinging beaded earrings and fun, playful clutches with—you guessed it—a little tassel detail.

Wanna shop? Yeah, me too. Let's do it together, below!

  1. Those accessories looks good, I really like them. I guess, I would like to by those things, but possibly it would be easier for me to made them by my own.
