2011 Spring/ Summer trend- Tassels

tas * sel  -  A bunch of loose threads or cords bound at one end and hanging free at the other, used as an ornament on curtains or clothing

  Traditionally, tassels are a symbol of luxury. For centuries they have been used for decorations on curtains, drapes, and lampshades. Another unique fashion piece that has many versatile uses.

                            Tassels give great embelishment to these curtains

  I first noticed the tassel trend on purses a couple months ago, and then started noticing them on clothing.

Tassels make great additions to any garment piece...

                                    There are so many cute dresses right now with tassel embellishments....

              Check out this fun Cynthia Rowley tassel skirt. So bright!


And don't forget the matching shell...


 Did I mention jewelry?

Check out Natalie Portman's Tiffany and Co. Tassel earrings that she wore to the Oscars. So beautiful.

     I loved everything about Natalie Portman's look for the Oscars- the color of her dress and earrings, as well as the actual dress itself.

                           Here is Ivanka Trump wearing a Tassel necklace

                           Tassel earrings with something I adore- bows!                                                                                             

           Back to tassels being on everything, they are also on shoes. Whether they be flat boots or high heels, you can find tassels on any style of shoe this season.




 Tassels are also fond on accessories, like the cute belt below


So whether it's a purse, some funky jewelry, or a pair of shoes- don't be afraid to rock tassels!
