5 Ways to Wear the Pom-Pom Trend This Summer

When it comes to the trends of summer 2018, there’s nothing more festive and fun than cute, colorful pom-poms—but trying to get the look without going overboard and looking too ~decked out~ can be a struggle. The trick? Sticking with one tasseled piece per look, and letting it be the statement-maker in your outfit. Read on for five ways to get the look without looking like a first-grader’s craft project. 

1. Off-the-shoulder blouse

Nail two summer trends in one by rocking an off-the-shoulder blouse with fun pom-pom accents. Paired with casual jean shorts, sandals and a summer-ready woven tote, it will easily become your go-to warm weather outfit.

2. Bold basket bag

Summer’s most effortless accessory is the basket bag—and it only becomes more festive and fun with tassels added into the mix. Pick a bag on the smaller side to use on the daily, or try a larger tote to store your essentials for when you’re headed out for a day at the beach.

3. Statement swimsuit

Pom-pom accents tend to be on the bolder side—so if you’re feeling a little color-shy, the beach or pool is a great place to test-drive the trend as a swimsuit before you add it to your #OOTD. This off-the-shoulder one-piece is sexy, but the teeny pom pom details keep things fun.

4. Pom pants

Black pants can easily be given an on-trend boho edge with some cute tassels around the hem—and they’re still totally wearable for your business-casual summer internship. Dress up the look with a sleek button-down and heels for work, or with a crop top and espadrilles on the weekends.

5. Sassy sandals

Is there any better way to draw attention to your pretty pedicure than with pom-pom sandals? We love the lace-up look with a few colorful pom-pom accents—try a heel if you want to add height, or keep things flat and comfy. They make an amazing statement piece to pair with an all-white outfit and look fun and flirty paired with a cute mini skirt.

While the pom-pom trend can be intimidating at first (hello, color and bold details, am I right?), it’s easy to wear when you pick one statement piece with cute and colorful tassels and let it shine. Basically, you’ve just found your go-to effortless summer uniform—you’re welcome.
