I love the a shoe with a tassel. From gold Coach loafers to classic Bass Weejuns to edgy Alexander Wang Silver heels - the tassel speaks to me.
I can't get enough of these shoes.
Apparently Paul Andrew can't either. I love the excess of tassels on his Arta Sandals from this Spring.
The Aqazzara Forever Marilyn heel incorporates tassels in a more subtle way. I love the heel placement. These will draw the eye as you walk away confidently. I'd love to pair these with a sharp grey suit.
And a shoe that made my "must have for Fall" list early, is the Sophia Webster Layla Pom-pom sandal. I WILL find these in my size.
Sure tassels can seem preppy or parochial, but these new styles are anything but boring and tame.
