There is a way to bring an added touch of detail to your prom outfit/dress without over-doing it. By simply finding those little perks you can easily add texture and intensity to an already stunning outfit. Simplicity is the key but with simple design sometimes come effortless appearances. You want to make sure that your dress has an allure; a certain charm.
Chic can be easy to achieve with the right touches. Tassels can bring to mind certain pictures of design; we’re not talking about gypsy design or belly dancing skirts. Tassels can be used in a way that creates class, refinement, and a free spirited influence. Now, tassels are usually spotted on the hem of a skirt or dress. This would seem like the most obvious choice because it is the thickest area that is to be covered, but this is not the only place that these decorative details can be positioned. The majority of designers do use this locale for the tassel placement but for a unique look search for dresses that are not tassel-bias. For a sweeter look, when relating to a dress that is hemmed with tassels, shoot for proper spacing. When a dress’ hem has tassels that are spaced too far apart it can look more like a salsa dancer’s dress instead of reflecting a solid elegance. So search for hem-tassels that are closer together.
Another style that is hitting the runways is the tassel shirt combinations. A strapless top-design with an elegant long tassel drape-over cover. It is a style that can be seen as a 1950’s inspired look. With the tassels on the top the style can be exquisite but the tassels should never completely cover the skirt; that look could end up causing you to closely resemble a hula dancer. Tassels can actually bring a sweet appeal to a dress with a front V-strap. Using an “O” clasp (of gem or rhinestone), with metallic tassels, from the front can add a charming accent to any style dress.
A tassel can even consist of a single (fabric) thread running through the neckline, or waist, of a dress. Once you have decided on the tassel effect of your outfit it is time to decide on tassels accessories. The accessory options are phenomenal; there are tassel handbags, tasseled jewelry (earrings, necklaces, ect.), and even tasseled, peep-toe platform heels (such as Bakers Orion leather ankle boots). Options are there to make you look incredibly set-up and put-together. So go for a sleek, minimal all-over tassel theme and go away with an updated eighties fab-look. You can pull it off and dazzle the crowd.
