You could say that tassel necklaces are an emerging obsession of mine for spring. They're right in line with the Spice Trail trend for spring 2014 and the Artisanal trend for spring 2015. Why else am I drawn to them? They're colorful and they certainly make a bold and bohemian style statement. Furthermore, they're a fun way to add a personal style stamp to an outfit. 

I layered my multi-colored version over a mixed print blouse for extra impact, but it also works well with solids and color blocked looks, which really make the necklace stand out. If you're bold, layer your tassel necklace with beaded jewelry and shorter chain necklaces for a strong statement.
