Not all tassels are born equal. In fact; a lot just can’t get the thickness, color, and length correct. I wouldn’t exactly call myself tassel-obsessed, but I certainly know a good tassel when I see one, and this is a good tassel! The Louis Vuitton Chinoiserie Tassel Earrings are the ultimate in my book, but costing way more than I would ever spend for essentially thread earrings, I went on a quest for something similar in texture and length, and ended up with a fuchsia pair of vintage earring from Etsy.com (click to view mine from a previous post).
Since I wanted my readers to also try out the look, I found the ASOS Long Tassel Drop Earrings With Ornate Cap Detail, $27.70, available at ASOS.com. I love the way that these sway and move within one’s hair, looking almost like extensions rather than earrings. I think they look best with the hair down, to provide a “blended” look. What do you think? Will you try the tassel earring trend?
