Accessories Trend: Tassels

Gone are the days when tassels were confined to loafers and home decor.  This season tassels are being featured on everything from handbags and heels to jewelry.  They add edge to a simple black clutch, sophistication to a carry-all tote, and allure to a pair of very sexy lace-up Louboutins.  Tassels are even standing alone (or in pairs rather) as statement earrings that are both fun and glamorous. Whether you want to be bold or play it safe, don't be afraid to have fun with this trend!
