Tassels, Fringes and Pom Poms, oh my!May 3, 2018
Tassels are trimming everything from clothing to shoes to accessories, adding pops of color and opulence.
When it comes to shoes, tassels have come a long way from the traditional, preppy tassel loafers. They’re now making a statement on all types of shoes, from strappy stilettos to slides and sandals.
Tassels are an easy way to add color to an outfit. For a flirty, fun resort look, go with multicolored tassels.
Jewelry is not immune to the tassel trend. Necklaces, bracelets and earrings are sporting mega tassels in a rainbow of summery colors.
Handbags & more
Whether you’re reaching for a beach bag, clutch or something in between, you’re certain to find something with tassels. Ditch the plain straw beach bag this summer for one with colorful tassels and/or pompoms.
Hats off to tassels!
You’ll have it made in the shade with a tasseled sun hat. Choose from styles with tassels encircling the hat like a band or dangling freely from the hat’s brim.
Fashion Care Tip: Be careful when washing garments with tassels. One way to avoid ruining the tassels is to wrap each one with an elastic hair band, crisscrossing the band so that it vertically covers the entire tassel. After washing, simply remove the elastic band. If you do have a matted tassel, use a hairbrush to gently brush out the kinks and use your fingers to carefully untie any knots.
