Behind the Design: Tassel & Fringe

Posted on Apr 22, 2019 5:17:48 PM


Flirty wardrobe season is upon us, ladies and gents! There are few feelings better than throwing on a festive statement piece, some crispy white denim, a little wedge or espadrille, and hitting the town. Luckily for us, warm weather styling scenarios are just one among many specialties of our beloved and highly fashion-able Chief Creative Director, Deborah Waterman Johns (DWJ).


Fringe and tassels in particular caught Deb’s eye this season, so DWJ did what DWJ does best and designed a highly sassy and colorful print. These accents are great methods of letting your inner boho butterfly out of her cold-weather chrysalis. These well-curated adornments can add flair to any and all accessories and ready-to-wear looks for spring and summer.


These funky additions—inspired by global handcrafts—include (but are not limited to) pom-poms, beaded or corded tassels, and fringes of all lengths. Reach for these fancy friends as adornments to tunics, jeans, jackets, dresses, and accessories. You can also punctuate those hemlines or add layers for more dimension with fringe skirts, pant legs, and novelty tops. Let’s also take a moment to address the image above and how darn cute those necklaces-converted-into-bracelets are. You could honestly wear all white, throw one or two of those ladies on, and strut right out the door. There’s some self-taught, ready-to-wear fashion advice for y’all.


Whether you prefer your fringe and tassel in smaller doses or you Can Not Get Enough of the stuff, you can always get your fix by grabbing any of our bags and accessories in Fringe with Benefits online. Now get out there and shake a pom-pom or two! (p.s. if tax season’s got you gloomy, fringe and tassels are a proven antidote!)
