5 Ways To Do the Tassel Trend Right

A couple days ago my girlfriend Shila gifted me a gorgeous necklace with a glitzy black tassel on the end. It’s very pretty and it reminded me of how a small accent piece can create a big and impressionable statement. This prompted me to showcase some basic tassel pieces, with the exception of one. These tassels are easy to incorporate and fun to wear.

This shoe is femme fatal perfection. The fierce pointy toe and the gorgeous shine set it apart from others. Via Spiga not only sexified this boot but added a touch of trend in a great spot. The tassel on the back will make your exit more memorable than your entry.

As usual, how could I leave out highlighting an accessory? This piece is very bold to say the least. It’s the definition of a statement necklace. It’s all metal and it’s got about 9 tassels seducing the neckline all at once. The center black stone ties the craziness together, and when I say crazy it’s not a bad thing. This is an easy way to glam up an old dress that you debated wearing. This will be your outfit.

If one tassel is all you need around your neck, then this next Topshop necklace will be your love. It is simple, yet very sophisticated. It’s a piece you will wear often…easily worn with casual attire and definitely can be a centerpiece for a nice evening dress. I like the pyramid shape on top and the longer tassels are much more alluring.

Can you afford to be selfish right before the holidays? Then get yourself the IT bag from YSL. I’ve featured this bag before but with a different color and completely different texture. I am obsessed with the black velvet version. The velvet and gold are basic and reminiscent of fashion trends from an older generation. I am so glad velvet is making a come back.

Finally I want to feature this iconic Tory Burch chain shoulder bag that gets the job done. Although there’s nothing new about this bag, it’s a classic and very versatile daytime bag. This bag is spacious and it is easy to drag around all day. It’s very chic and the tassels make this otherwise boring bag lively.
