Tassels are synonymous with festival season and summer’s go-with-the-flow vibes, so with warmer weather starting to settle in, the playful detail is popping up all over the Insta feeds of your favorite Instababes and celebs. Of course, the question of how to actually wear them after the festival ends has probably crossed your mind. But overcoming the accent’s bohemian flair is surprisingly straightforward. This week’s Three Ways to Wear tapped Lucy Hale, Zoë Kravitz, and Whitney Port for three fashion-forward ways to rock tassels all season long.

How to Wear Tassels for Work
Slay, Shay, slay. Tassels are the icing on the cake of Shay Mitchell’s seaside-ready ensemble, adding a bit of extra oomph to a throw-on-and-go poncho.
Take the less-is-more route with a set of tassel-tied suede pumps that are at once sophisticated and snappy, then go bold with the rest of your duds. Exotic mix-and-match prints bring the drama without taking your look OTT, while a sleek top-handle tote and collar necklace ensure your getup stays grounded in girlboss territory.

When things start to heat up, take a step back from your standard LBD routine and get ready to embrace carefree silhouettes and vibrant colors. This lightweight maxi is packed with polish and panache but will keep you cool while you schmooze and sway to the beat.
