Spring Trends on my Radar: Pom-Poms

Spring Trends on my Radar: Pom-Poms

Pom-poms are so unlike me I’m surprised they’re on my radar at all. I started noticing them last summer and now I see them everywhere. I don’t tend towards playful or girly looks but the more pom-poms I run across, the more I like them. I suspect it’s easy to go overboard and end up looking like a kindergarten art project…which I want to avoid like the plague.

Are there elegant ways to wear pom-poms? Maybe, but does that defeat the whole purpose of pom-poms?

Kate Spade pom-pom espadrille

These Kate Spade lace up platform sandals would be easy to wear all summer. Picture them with white jeans and sun dresses.

There’re lots of straw hats and totes sporting pom-poms this year. I tried a few hats on but felt goofy in them. Maybe I’ll just glue some pom-poms on a tote I already own. Oh, oh…glue and pom-poms sound like a kindergarten craft.

This clutch by Loeffler Randal is a colorful way to add them to your look. The all black outfit makes the pom-poms pop and the bag itself recede. I’d wear this outfit with flats which would dress the whole thing down a notch. A less expensive version would be smarter for me because…well pom-poms:)



I wandered through the shoe department in Nordstrom last week and fell in love with these shoes! These don’t feel too sweet for my style. Hispanitas are incredibly comfortable which is always my goal with shoes. I’m testing them out on the carpet at home to be sure they’re comfy before I commit.

Bauble Bar Crispin earrings

Then I found these earrings. I love their price, color, shape and summer vibe. I’ll wear these all summer long. Nothing serious about these earrings and I don’t feel like Carmen Miranda wearing them. The blush color is also on trend and a fun change from my usual earring style.

Is there a new fashion you’re wanting to try this spring?

Does your style change for warmer weather?

    I love frothy things and your earrings are great and the flat shoes ooooooh I want those! Sadly in New Zealand the chances of getting them is nil. But the trend could be a craft project – make lots of little pomegranate poms and add them to the neckline of a cotton sweater other cardigan. I am off to buy yarn ! Cheers Linda

    The earrings are really fun! I’ve been eyeing a black and white pair.

    They are cute. I don’t like to spend a lot on fun trends though. Footwear must be comfortable at this stage in life. And good shoes /sandals are expensive. So, I don’t think I’ll be buying Pom Pom sandals. The pair you brought home are cute and comfy looking. Enjoy!

    I love pom poms. Playful yet sophisticated. Love those shoes you found. I’ll have to check them out! xo

    I love how the Hispanitas pom pom flats look on you! Following the link to the Nordstrom’s website, I was able to view the soles for these shoes. They look slippery. I’ve gotten to the point in life where my shoes must be comfortable and they must also have non-slip soles to avoid/minimize the risk of falling. Do you or any of your readers have a similar concern?

      I haven’t worn mine outside yet, so I will check.I HATE slippery soles, they can be so dangerous. They have a TPU outsole which are not supposed to be slippery but I will check into it!

    Those little Pom Pom flats are so cute, but the extremely pointed toe is sooooo bad for anyone with even a hint of a bunion….it encourages your big toe to turn inward, which makes the problem even worse.
