Colorful Tassel Earrings

These shimmery creations range from a subtle one-inch length to a shoulder-dusting six. We've always been fans, but tassels are truly having a moment, and no wonder: The light-weight embellishments make a big sartorial statement when worn with summer basics. And while they look high-fashion, they're low-effort.


Make a matching Mini-Tassel Chain Necklace to pair with your set of earrings.

  1. Choose the size and color of your tassels. (Tip: See our editors' favorites in the materials list.)

  2. Use needle-nose pliers to slip fishhook-shaped ear wires through tassels and insert the top loops of the tassels inside. Pinch the wire closed around the tassels.
