Don your letterman jacket, swap your jeans for a mini and dust off your leotards cause it’s time to get your cheer on as fashion goes hur-rah for pom-poms!
Topping winter hats for decades and more recently hanging from our haute handbags, pom-poms and tassels are set to crash in this summer in a cloud of colour! Perfect festival wear, beach casual or to channel hippy chic.
The surf haven of Ericeira was the perfect town to take in some of this summer's top trend. Check out my top picks from the local boutiques whilst we wait for the trend to diffuse its way from the runway to our high street stores....
Fabulous straw beach bags trimmed with pom-poms and adorned with tassels.
Rustica showcased a variety of lightweight cotton kaftans in all colours of the rainbow.
Biju With Love
Hand-crafted jewellery with a combination of shells, beading, tassels and pom-poms.
Biju also stocked large circular sarongs fringed with pom-poms and reflecting traditional Portuguese motifs. Wear them or use as beach mats as we did!
This trend is a great example that fashion doesn't always have to be so serious. Have some fun and indulge your inner-child (or inner cheerleader)! You can't help but raise a smile if you embrace the trend.
If head to toe pom-poms is too much for you to handle, check out this cute interpretation I came across at my work showing us that the trend can work as office wear too! Be inspirational and spread the cheer.
