Adding a tassel to everything was de rigueur in the 80's. Today, the tassel has its place, albeit a more subtle one. Rather than hanging them from dresser pulls, doorknobs and lamps, try them in a less conspicuous role. They will never lose their allure as tiebacks, it just depends how luxe the look you are going for.

Hang a tassel on it. Add this little dash of color with Blair Ritchey's suede or lambskin tassel to a clutch or case as a zingy zipper pull.

Marisa I am addicted to tassels and I loved this post. Didn't you love the Russell + Hazel tasseled key chains too?! So fab.
