Put the loud prints aside and embrace a new trend that has been a hot talk amongst fashion addicts! In the recent years, tassels, fringe, and pompoms have become popular embellishments to clothing and accessories, reminiscing the classic styles of the past but still embodying a fashion forward statement.

Luxury brands such as Versace, Gucci, and Balmain have adhered to this trend, boosting its popularity via the endorsements of many A-list celebrities including Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, and the Kardashians.

Eventually, the expanse of the styles has become tremendous, allowing popular brands such as Forever 21, H&M, and Zara to fuse these “danglers” into their collections. Stay chic by getting your hands on these affordable pieces!

Tassels

French fashion house Balmain makes great use of this style in most of their pieces. Not only do tassels make clothing and accessories stand out heavily, but they also project a high level of sophistication that immediately induce conversations amongst style enthusiasts.  Pieces with tassels are appropriate for dressy occasions or if you’re ambitious, in the office. Accessories with tassels are more versatile and can be worn practically anytime.

4. Fringe Skirt

Fringe

A prevalent style of the ‘70s, fringe is back to “swish” those monotonous outfit days! Rock this style with minimal pieces to tone down the potential “costume-y” vibe but still look fresh and professional in the eyes of commons. Similar to tassels, fringe can be worn to intimate dinners or formal events throughout the day.

5. Pompom shirt 6. Pompom bag

Pompoms

Of the three styles, pompoms definitely take the cake for being the most adorable! They have not only become popular to adults but also to young fashion goers. However, don’t let the cute style fool you – models have fiercely rocked pompoms on notable runway shows! Pompom-embellished pieces can be worn for daytime gatherings or even at the beach.
