If you are like me, just hearing the word tassels, paints a certain image of men’s basket weave shoes with tiny little tassels on them. Not necessarily a bad thing, but up until recently tassels were associated with anything but women’s haute couture. This is hard to imagine since any which way you turn this Spring, tassels are virtually EVERYWHERE.
I have to say, this trend has really grown on me. So much so, that I now seek out items adorned with this whimsical little accessory. This season I hope to make you see tassels in a whole new light; show you how to wear them, and of course, help you implement them into your wardrobe. Truth be told tassels are THE hottest trend for the Spring. There isn’t a single article or clothing or accessory that hasn’t been touched by it and lucky for you, I have done some digging and found the ultimate must-have tasseled items to own this Spring.
Tasseled To Impress
Tassels on dresses often connote a bohemian style of wear. So, this year Gucci, one of the most revered design houses took on the task of re-purposing this trend by putting tassels on the most sensual of dresses, their sleeveless crisscross dress with a scarf. I love everything about it except for the price. I just don’t think that it is worth $1,495. So don’t fret if this particular dress doesn’t fit into your immediate budget, because I found a great way to achieve the tassel look for less. Start by investing in a tassel belt. Belts in general are a great accessory, whether they’re a classic leather belt or needlework belts and no collection can be too big. A tassel belt will be a great addition to any collection.
Not only will it look superb with dresses but it opens up an entire new realm of possibilities when paired with your existing coveted pieces. Personally, I’m a big fan of the Malene Birger brown belt with gold hardware and a tassel. It’s moderately priced and has a unique vintage feel.
The Boho-Chic Tops and Bottoms
Not only will you be donning the hottest Spring colors, but the small dangling bundles of yarn will add ultimate charm to the outfit of you choosing. My top DVF picks are the Parlian Mustard Tank to the left and soft and comfy Corban Cropped Pants the to the right. They can be worn in a casual way or dressed up and perfect for those day to night transitions.
J’adore Tassel Accessories
Because there are simply too many jaw-dropping tassel accessories to list, I decided to feature a select few items that spoke to me. But as you browse and shop this Spring, I am certain that you will find even more irresistible pieces that catch your eye.
I know that it is getting warmer outside, but you can never go wrong with a pair of funky and chic booties. You can wear them with shorts and skirts during the milder months and jeans when the weather gets cooler. I stumbled on these stunning Camilla Skovgaard Tassel Ankle Booties and just had to share. They are true show-stoppers.
When the weather does get warmer, this is the “IT” swimsuit to have. It is bound to turn heads. It’s simplicity gives it ultimate appeal and the oversized tassels make it one-of-a-kind. So, if you are not tasseled out by the end of the Spring, this Jane Bikini by Despi is a great investment.
Talk about saving the best for last. If these earrings are not the ultimate must-have accessory for the Spring, I don’t knw what item is worthy this superlative. The Tassel Rosmary Earrings are hands down my absolute favorite item of the season. These earrings are regal yet casual, they can dress up an outfit or simply give pizazz. What can I say, I am in love. With the natural movement they possess, they are sure to bring the dullest of attires to life.
I hope that tassel fever is contagious because you are going to start to notice tassels everywhere. Give them a try in a form of an accessory or perhaps apparel; but whatever you do take this trend my storm, you won’t regret it. Happy Shopping Ladies!
