Pom-poms bring to mind perky cheerleaders and failed elementary school craft projects. If you had asked me earlier about my thoughts on pom poms in fashion, I would have scoffed and giggled. But after seeing the latest styles featuring pom-pom trim I can’t get enough. Pom-pom trim adds the perfect amount of flair and fun to any outfit. Tiny pom poms are whimsical without looking tacky and overwhelming.

This Fashionista is ready for summer in her adorable pom-pom beach shorts. These shorts scream summer and all that is good. They are a light coral color with a black leaf print and white pom-pom trim. They are cute and comfy, perfect for lounging in the sun on a beautiful day. To highlight the awesomeness of her shorts, she wore a white lace top and white cardigan. Her white top and cardigan served as a blank canvas to let her shorts be the star of the outfit. Gold details from her chain necklace and glittery sandals added shine and brightness to the mix. She looks ready for a trip to Hawaii in her tropical-chic look!

Pom-pom trim adds an element of playfulness that is perfect for summer. These fluffy orbs are embellishing everything from shorts and shirts to dresses and cute playsuits. If you are feeling crafty you can even DIY pom-pom trim onto your favorite fashion pieces. Don’t be afraid to dive in, pom poms are in for summer!
