It’s All In The Details: Tassels

June 10, 2016

This season, we are seeing a return to the humble trim. Tassels are adorning everything from clothing, accessories and even swim suits. The vibe ranges from ethnic to homemade, as rows of tassels  give garments a decorative edge.

While there are lots of ready to wear options in the shops right now, it’s an easy DIY update to last season’s items. Pick up a yard or two of tasseled trim at your local sewing, craft or even home decor shop, and sew it on the hem of a simple, dress, top or  a pair of shorts to get the look.

Fringe Benefits

September 8, 2014

It’s only been a few days since New York Fashion Week began, but already some trends are starting to emerge.

Fringe showed up on many catwalks, ranging from long fringe, to “eyelash” treatments and frayed edges.

Creatures of Comfort layered fringed knits over crisp cotton shirts:3fc3c6d72d660d7086482d6af6d9d427


Ulla Johnson also fringed her sweaters, worn atop easy wide legged pants:


Tibi added placed fringe to their lean pencil skirt:




Can’t wait to add this look to your wardrobe? No worries! Do as Rachel Comey and Ulla Johnson did, and fray the edges of your pants to get a jumpstart on the trend.


DIY: Cut off the hem of your jeans or heavy weight cotton bottoms. For a more refined look, stitch along the edge about 3/8″ up from the bottom to prevent the fabric from unravelling further during wear. Toss them in the washing machine, and trim the edges to take off the super long pieces and you’re good to go!
