Princess Victoria’s Tassel Earrings

January tends to be a pretty slow month, fashion wise. I think maybe most royals tend to go on vacations to Mustique or Ibiza or someplace warm after the hectic Christmas season. I’m not sure, but royals seem to be in hiding right now. In addition to that, shops are either empty or full of leftover winter clearance items in order to make way for upcoming Spring collections. For my part, I have been visiting local shops and researching pre-Spring runway fashion on the internet to try and predict what this Spring has in store for us so I can plan my Spring fashion blog posts.

I am not sure which designer originally came up with the trend of tassel earrings, but I do know that Oscar de la Renta seems to be the one who popularized it. And it doesn’t look like this trend is going away any time soon with de la Renta’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection featuring lots of tassel earrings in a variety of colors. Pink, teal, white, and lots of other light, pastel colors perfect for Spring. As I looked through the collection I recalled seeing at least one of my favorite royal ladies wearing tassel earrings: Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. I think she is such a sweet person and very fashionable, too. After a bit of searching I managed to find the picture and it turns out that she was in fact wearing Oscar de la Renta earrings and she likes them so much she’s worn them at least twice. Behold! 🙂

I don’t normally like to rush out and buy ‘trendy’ items since many trends go in and out of fashion in a blink of an eye, but I really like the idea of tassel earrings. I think it’s cool. So I have decided that I will probably treat myself to a pair of tassel earrings this Spring. Here are some of the Oscar de la Renta earrings for Spring/Summer 2016.

But I especially like ones like these with some gem embellishment, it adds some extra bling.

But the Oscar de la Renta earrings are on the expensive side, in my opinion. Which is totally great if you want to splurge. However, I found some more affordable alternatives that I also like.

These cool Madame Mathilde earrings are on sale for $71.

The Frugal Lady
