Despite the fact that I was raised in the south in the heart of the Bible belt, among debutantes and Lilly Pulitzer fanatics, I have never been one for preppy styles. The bright overbearing prints and crazy colors never seemed to do the trick for me. Recently, however, I have found myself gravitating towards the new trend of pom-poms. Why? I myself am still trying to figure this one out, but I must admit the brighter and bolder, the more eye-catching I find them to be. While I still seem to be dragging my feet about hopping on this bandwagon, I applaud my fellow Fashionistas for rocking the trend.
From earrings and necklaces, to shoes and handbags, colorful pom-poms have made their grand debut in department stores and boutiques for the spring season. While accessories seem to be the most common form, this Fashionista decided to choose a top with the pom-poms incorporated directly into the design of her top. Coupled with the tiered bell sleeve design, the top takes on a Spanish inspired aesthetic that is sure to catch the eye of those around. She chose to further emphasize the color and design of the top by pairing it with crisp white denim. She finished her look with a strappy wedge for an overall resort type feel.
Adding colored pom-poms is an easy way to add a little fun and flavor to your outfit. Whether you are going for preppy or tropical, these pops of color do the trick.
