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.
