Here’s how to make this street style and runway trend all your own!
We’re guessing the first thing that comes to mind when the word pompom comes up is a peppy cheerleader doing flips in the air. That’s far from what we’re talking about here, though! Fashion’s obsession with pompoms comes in the form of cute and colorful fluffy balls that add a boho slant to the season’s key pieces. Check out how to wear this fun trend now:
The White Shirt
What better way to elevate a crisp white tee than with some cheeky pompoms? This one from Florence Fling is subtly adorned with them, giving it an instant update. Pair it with striped culottes from Zara and these coveted mules from No. 21 and you’re all set for a Saturday lunch date with your guy. Accessorize with an H&M bandana, clutch from local label Beatriz, big sunnies (Perllini & Mel), ring set (Mango), then finish off the look by painting your nails with Deborah Lippmann’s orange-red Footloose.
The Flat Sandal
Your Instagram feed may have been filled with pictures of your favorite bloggers donning handmade strappy sandals by Greek artist Elina Linardaki. Her pairs are craftily adorned with charms, mixed fabric, and multicolored pompoms. Can’t get a hold of your own pair just yet? Opt for this wearable option from Zara. Keep the focus on this bright statement-maker by wearing it with a sleek yet easy denim mini dress by Steve J & Yoni P. Complete the look with a roomy tote, dangling gold earrings, a wide-brimmed hat, and a swipe of Nars’ iconic pink lipstick, Schiap!
The Sexy Heel
Who says sexy heels can’t also be quirky? Aquazzura’s strappy pompom heels combine both qualities effortlessly. Make this look office-ready with an easy blouse from Mango and a to-the-knee pencil skirt from Stradivarius. Whip out your equally stylish purse from Kate Spade and phone case from Paragon Pieces to impress your officemates. After-dark plans? Swipe that matte red lippie from Nyx and line your eyes with 3CE’s liquid liner for a super precise cat eye ideal for going out on the town.
The Shoulder Bag
Heavily embellished purses don’t need to be reserved for wear just on special occasions. Make this intricate shoulder bag by Zara everyday-appropriate by using it to complete a casual yet polished getup. A white tee with ruffle detail from Warehouse worn with wide leg dark wash jeans from Mango and comfy flatforms can take you from a weekend market to a movie night with the gang seamlessly. Keep the rest of your look pared down, though; just accessorize with a watch, like this one from Michael Kors. Plus, no need for a heavy face either! Groom your brows with Bobbi Brown’s brow kit and swirl on some bronzer/highlighter by Too Faced for a breezy finish.
