Tassels were invented in Italy, an artisanal, hand-made tradition of trimmings called “passamaneria” used widely in ancient Roman homes and during the Renaissance.  Today, tassels remain a part of home décor that often inspires fashion as well. We’ve seen it on shoes, handbags and scarves. This summer tassels can be a playful way to incorporate color and fun into your wardrobe—canary yellow, bright pink and refreshing mint. You can’t go wrong, especially when paired with organic textures like straw.

Playful fashion extends to footwear this season, and statement sneakers tap into street style. Harness your inner teenager and express yourself —zippers, animal prints, graffiti or paint splashes. Summer is the perfect time to try a new trend.

Warm weather begs a visit to the beach, and what better way to capitalize on a small overnight bag then choosing versatile wraps that can serve a dual purpose? A casual, gauzy scarf doubles as a sarong; a bohemian cover-up paired with strappy sandals serves as a mini dress; and a transparent caftan over jeans and heels translates from day to night.

Packing light for a vacation can be stressful, especially when weather is unpredictable, but our guide helps you navigate travel fashion to different destinations: the mountains, big cities, the beach and resorts. A few key pieces can make the difference.

And, with Father’s Day around the corner, spruce up dad’s wardrobe too with a new pair of shorts. This season men’s shorts are getting shorter. Don’t wear anything beyond the knee!
