The Microtrend with Major Potential

One of spring 2016's catwalk influences can already be as a street style favourite, even though it's a microtrend you'd easily miss on the runway; pieces featuring trailing tassels and strips of fabric are all a-flutter around sleeves, cuffs, waistbands, skirt, trousers... wherever a pull cord could go, you will find one. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait until next season to see this interesting detail in action. Nay, we’ve seen fashion favourites like Anya Ziourova and Sarah Harris testing it out already, and with inspiring results no less. Just beware of the closing doors...

Scroll down to see what we mean, and in the comments at the end, be sure to tell us if you think it’s bound to be a big trend.
