POM POM PARADE
If you’ve been keeping up to date with fashion feeds lately (and if you’re reading this, we know you have!) you’ll have noticed that S/S 2016 style is all about having fun. Especially when it comes to accessories.
Out of all the fun and funky trends out there, pom poms have to be our fave. Yes, pom poms! What started as a fluffy key ring craze (you know, the single fluffy pom pom you’ve seen hanging off bags and clutches) has now grown into a full-blown fashion trend.
While we kept it simple for winter; summer bags, clutches and shoes are bold, bright and peppered with pomp poms. And we can’t get enough of it!
Here are some of our top ways to wear the trend…
Whether you’re choosing an open-toed sandal or a classic slip on, pom poms are a super cool way to jazz up your flats. Try wearing flats with one single ‘pom’ on each toe or get a pair that’s decked out with different colours.
The pom pom covered heel is definitely the most popular accessory within this trend. We’ve seen them out at lunches, at events and even at the races! Go for a simple coloured heel with colourful pom poms around the toe and ankle strap.
If you’re just getting into this trend, a pom pom purse is the way to go. We love the look of big straw beach bags decorated with colourful pom poms and shiny embellishments. You might also like to go for a smaller clutch covered in little pom poms instead.
Aside from being all over bags and shoes, pom poms are also being used to accessorise clothing. Bauble-like trims are popping up everywhere on the end of sleeves, shorts and skirts.
