Let’s talk tassels

It’s out with minimalism and in with extravagance for accessories.

Tassels are taking fashion on a tour of color, culture and design this season with globally inspired styles. And what better way to exude a Bohemian, free-spirit vibe than with free-flowing accessories?

Just in time for beach trips, sunset cruises and backyard barbecues, these stand-alone pieces will surely add character to any ensemble.

THE JEWELRY CORNER

Every tassel-wearing woman should feel like royalty. And that’s because tassels were historically worn as symbols of love, protection and power in various cultures around the world. Select one statement piece (yes, only one) and add some oomph to your sundress without overdoing it. For those glamorous occasions, opt for a timeless necklace by David Yurman.
