The Pom-Pom trend is undeniably cute in application, girlie in nature and boasts of Mediterranean vacations (or wishing of!) But it also hovers on the edge of craft-store get-up, drawing on a cheapness that doesn’t match its fashion-forward devotees as displayed on any Instagram feed.
On-Line, it is one of the most picturesque trends of the season, a focal point for so many ‘Influencers’ - but in real life, Pom-Pom’s need to be styled correctly in order to strike a balance between Fun-and-Flirty and DIY-Over-Do!
The key to working Pom-Pom’s to your stylish advantage is to make them the focal point - the style accent of any outfit - while maintaining simplicity throughout the rest of your attire.
Aim for ONE pom-pom adorned garment or accessory only. Anything more would be risking a complete fashion fail.
Whether you choose a brightly coloured garland of small Pom-Poms to hang off the sleeve-edge of your T-shirt, dress hem or the bottom of your shorts or larger more accented Pom-Pom’s on a hat or sandals, the undeniable advantage is that Pom Pom’s can take a serious garment (LBD for example) and insert gorgeous amounts of fun into it, or a relatively simple one (the white Tee) and create a fashionable edge instantaneously.
So keep your styling simple, opt for only ONE item to accent in Pom-Pom’s and you’ll channel those Island vibes in the most stylish of ways!
Here are 5 ways to work Pom-Pom’s this season:
- KEY CHAIN
Keep it minimal by adding a singular pom-pom onto your bag of choice via a keychain. This is more for the sophisticated fashionista who would like to try the trend without fully diving into a garland of puffs.
Non-Intrusive but playfully on-key, carrying a bag embellished with Pom-Poms is a slight wink to the trend. It allows huge amounts of freedom in your chosen apparel while still maintaining an air of girlish adventure.
3) ANKLE STRAP HEELS
Incredibly fun and flirtations, emerging in a swarm of delicately placed Pom-Poms around your feet is sure to have you stepping to a samba beat no matter where you are walking. Pom-Poms around your feet can activate your attire and take it from something predictable to something incredibly vibrant.
Bold to say the least, adorning an every-day and oversized sweater with equally big and bright Pom-Pom’s is the way to take this trend to the next level.
Pom-Pom’s on a jacket can be a great way for the more mature Fashionista to embrace this very child-like trend. Always look for ways to reinterpret trends in a manner that is age-appropriate.
