It's summer, it's the law that you must wear tassels! Here are our favourite dangly delights

Once only seen on curtain pull cords and granny’s chintzy lampshades, the humble tassel is having a fashion moment. Case in point – these cheeky navy earring (£46) from Stella and Dot, that would look brilliant with a messy top knot and a maxi dress of a balmy summer’s evening. When it comes to tassels, time is of the essence – wear them right now, as something so deliciously frivolous just doesn’t work come the winter months. Want more? Voila, our no-hassle top tassels….

The White Company don’t just do candles and bed linen, doncha know – its womenswear is definitely worth a gander too. These buttery suede taupe sandals are £75, but look super-luxe.

Head to, Net-a-Porter’s sales site, for Antik Batik’s pretty, colourful boho bags, decked out with embroidery, beading and tassels. We love this show-stopping wallet (£68).


Hush, don’t tell everyone about Hush’s ace selection of summer dresses. Check out the fluted, tasselly sleeves on this chic little number that’ll take you from beach to bar (in the sale at £60).
