In 2011, tassels are used a decorative gems, usually made of leather or silk. Lately we've seen them in leather, hanging on anything from bags to shoes to dresses to belts. Tassels have been elongated and made to stand out in 2011. Rope and tassels naturally come together in the fashion world, they tend to accompany each other on clothes, accessories, shoes... etc. This combination can have the luxurious look, or the nautical feeling depending on how it's used. The luxurious side would be used more on dresses. Many labels such as Gucci and Pucci have used rope and tassels together before. I hope that was useful to you... I added pictures of course! (: I'll try to hurry and finish up the rest of these 2011 Top Trends!
