Pom Poms are having a major fashion moment right now, but the trend first made history in 2011, when Nicki Minaj sat in the front row of a Carolina Herrera show next to Anna Wintour, looking as though she’d just dipped her body in craft glue and dove into a pit of multi-coloured pom poms. The effect was FANTAMSTIC!
As fashion’s obsession with pom poms continues, they are suddenly popping up everywhere, adorning everything from sandals and bags to clothing and jewellery. We’ve gone ahead and put together must-have items available in-store. But if you think they’re strictly reserved for under twelves, think again. Yes, they may look like something out of a child’s craft box – but well, that’s kind of exactly the point. And we are wanting all these kids cuties in adult size too please! (Oh wait… there are adult versions too!). It’s never too late!
The key chain & cap
If the runway has taught us anything it’s that dressing up your arm candy has become somewhat of an international pastime. Handbags are no longer standalone accessories so it’s time to give yours some extra charm.
