From our friends at thefind.com:
You may have hated your old high school uniform, either because it stifled your fashion freedom or was just plain ugly (or both), but nowadays, everyone who’s ever seen an episode of Gossip Girl knows that preppy-chic is something to strive for! As a result, tassel accented handbags are having a bit of an extended moment in the style spotlight, and we’re loving what this added fringe provides to our favorite handbags. Way cooler than those dorky tasseled oxfords your dad wears, but not quite as extreme as full-on western-inspired fringe, tassels give movement and add visual interest while still looking polished and sophisticated. Sure, a handbag can totally make or break your outfit, but it shouldn’t upstage the rest of your look, and these preppy pieces add the perfect dash of class!
Diane Von Furstenberg ‘Harper Bon Bon’ tassel shoulder bag, Marc Jacobs leather ‘Dancer’ tassel bag,
Diane Von Furstenberg black leather ‘Elaine Photographer’ convertible shoulder bag, and
Chloe black faux leather ‘Eden’ small crossbody bag
