I especially like when black pom poms are added to neutral pieces (like this straw hat) which somehow creates a playful but still minimal and elegant look. Many of the pom pom pieces you see in the shops are very colourful and perfect for a bohemian look. Although I like boho styles, having a lot of red and orange pom poms can quickly look too much in an outfit. I could really imagine using pom poms as a statement piece or a colourful highlight in an otherwise monochrome outfit though.
I especially like the Kate Spade summer collection with the cute (but pricey) fruit-shaped pom poms. The black and white bags with colourful pom pom keyrings to draw the eye also really appeal to me – that’s how I like pom poms to be used. Especially against the black and white it’s a nice statement! This might be a good DIY project actually as pom poms aren’t too hard to make! There are lots of tutorials out there. This is a great one using a fork to make mini pom poms. I just never seem to have the time…
From Kimonos to Jewelry
Pom poms are added to everything these days – from adorning the sleeves of kimonos to jewelry. One piece of jewelry that particularly caught my eye is this Peruvian bracelet with pom poms made from Sterling silver.
