I'm swooning over this Hollywood Regency Gilt Tassel Bench upholstered in blue and white ikat from Madeline Weinrib. With the gilding, the curves, the luxe fabric, and of course, the tassels, it's totally ostentatious. But sometimes a girl is entitled to flaunt it! Unless you're using them as curtain tiebacks, tassels in general are merely a decorative feature — a finishing touch. This one's an unlikely find, but there are plenty of furnishings featuring ornamental tassels to go around. Check out a few that I'm liking below!
Tassel necklaces have been on the fashion circuit, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for tassel earrings. Dressing up your earlobes is a cinch, so consider these Long Chain Tassel Earrings. When in a mad rush, throw them on and get instant glamification.
The current bidding price is at $0.80, and the auction ends on Wednesday, Nov. 19. Good luck and happy bidding!
All of the fiddly bits on display at Louis Vuitton's Spring 2009 show are liable to give minimalists a heart attack but for those that like a little ornamentation it was great inspiration for Fall. One of the best styling tricks was the incorporation of tassels in unexpected places. While you can't buy the collection for a few months you can certainly get a head start on the tassel trend right now. We have taken the liberty of suggestion a few options.
Kelly Ripa is on camera a lot, so not only does she always have to look camera ready but also camera pretty. While filming a segment in NYC, Kelly opted to dazzle the cameras with a kimono-style Anna Sui dress and Yves Saint Laurent Tribute platforms. Sui's prints are desirable because they're always wonderfully hippie and feminine at the same time. I thought Kelly's look needed some more accessories so I also gave her a gold tassel necklace and nude clutch. And action.
Try to pry your eyes away from Ivanka's beautiful face and focus on her jewelry. Her tassel necklace is perfection defined. The clustered strands add a swinging, vintage quality to her ensemble, and look how it contrasts with her striking blue top.
These fun confections, which were in abundance at the Emmy Awards, come in all types of splendor. Go native and opt for a multi-colored beaded rendition, or keep it classic with a golden chain. Sway away . . .
I have quite the style crush on Derek Lam, but I'm overwhelmed by the humungo tassle on this Derek Lam Isolde Square Tote with Tassel ($1,695). Other than that I love — the puddy color, the square frame, the rolled shoulder strap, all very beautiful. Does the tassel bug you too?
TasselAire perfumed tassels ($35) infuse a subtle fragrance into the air of your home, simply by hanging them on your doorknobs, closet hooks, or armoire keys (if you've got one). You can also use them as tie-backs of curtains. There's a decent variety of scents available, including lavender and rosemary, bitter orange, and Mediterranean jasmine. Assuming they smell nice, I love the idea of taking something that's typically used simply for decoration and giving it a new purpose. Potpourri is SO over!! I'm also loving the pretty box they come in. Do I smell a reimagined tassel trend approaching? I'm just waiting for Blik to make tassel wall decals . . .
I'll admit that when I first laid eyes on Gucci's Indy Bag, $2,990, it wasn't lust at first sight. But it came to life for me when I saw it on Jennifer Lopez. Granted the rest of her outfit is a tad overbearing, but that metallic bag with tassels really stands out and grabs your attention. On the right person, it can be a fashion jackpot.
