Trendwatch: Tassels for Fall


Tassels are definitely having a moment, and it won’t be ending this fall. We love the way they flutter just a bit in the breeze or sway as you chuckle lightheartedly. But their best asset may be their ability to effortlessly take an outfit from drab to dressy or from pretty to polished in a flash. Here are a few to make life more fun this fall.

1. The dangling earrings from Essentia (at top) are long but light – the handmade tassels almost grace the collar bone –  with a small bead of chrysoprase for adornment. Wear them to show off your carefree – but still elegant – side.

2. Bring the color and motion of the sea with you wherever you go with Sequin’s Grace cuff, a 22-karat-gold-dipped bracelet with sea-foam silk tassel.

3. Haarstick Jewelry’s lariat necklace with silk tassels adds major drama to any outfit. At 50-inches long, you can wrap this strappy piece however you like.
