12 Tassel Necklaces With Loads Of Fringe Benefits

A tassel here, a tassel there — this embellishment never really went away (it's a classic), but it's definitely seen a resurgence in popularity lately. And, when moved beyond the more traditional, bohemian maxi-dress pairing, fringe necklaces take on an artful vibe that's surprisingly fresh and clever. We offer up the 12 pieces in the slideshow ahead as evidence.
Even though we'll be transitioning to fall in a few weeks, these woven tokens will carry you straight into next season — preferably layered over a chunky sweater for a visually arresting look. Plus, featuring trims that are oversized to teensy tiny, they'll have many more benefits (#OOTD potential, anyone?) than just their fringe.
