  1. Tassels

Tassels come in a variety of sizes, colors, and material making it the perfect way to add a pop of color or bling to any outfit.

This season we have seen tassels on earrings, necklaces, and bracelets as well as cover-ups and beach bags.

To rock, this summer look like a pro, pair a tassel necklace or earrings with your favorite plus size cover-up or plus size swimsuit and hit the pool or beach in style.

If you’re looking for a way to get in on this summer trend without actually wearing it, reach for a summer bag or keychain.

Whatever your look may be, tassels are sure to add the perfect amount of summer flare.

  1. Statement Earrings

Hoop earrings have been around forever, and with so many shapes and sizes to choose from, finding the perfect statement hoop to liven up your outfit should be a snap!

If hoops aren’t quite your thing, try a dangle or drop earring which comes in a variety of lengths and materials.

For those who have more sensitive ears, lightweight hoops or dangles are best. Try finding a statement earring made of plastic, beads, light-weight metal, or cloth.

 

Pro Tip: Just because an earring is smaller, doesn’t mean it can’t make a statement! Try pairing a bright color earring with an up-do or a fun plus size coverup for a look that’s sure to make a statement!

Like their counterpart the tassel, pom poms come in a variety of sizes and colors making them the perfect accessory to pair with just about anything.
