Lassoing Lariats

They're eye-catching, fun and still selling

Keeping it casual is an easy way for your customers to make a fashion statement, especially with lariats and the closely related bolo ties and mesh chains. Lengths hover just below the bustline, keeping these chains from becoming awkward.

Celebrities such as Angie Harmon and Nicole Kidman continue to wear these styles, a good
indication they’re here to stay.
