I’m cultivating a new interest, and love, for pom poms. They were once reserved for children (at least that’s what I thought), but now they are invading adult fashion, and even decor.
The scarf (above) is a pom pom scarf, although I would consider it a ‘tasseled’ one, since these are not round-shaped like ‘normal’ pom poms are. Let me linger a bit around this scarf. The tribal-inspired print is so beautiful, isn’t it, and the colors are so well together. Very nice, in deed.

Back to pom poms.
Here (above) are some more-like-it pom pom scarves from a ‘Sugar Mill by India Hicks’ collection. Absolutely lovely!

Pouffes, and even curtains, have been seen around decor blogs & sites while parading a nice touch of ‘pom pom’ love. The ones above (Graham & Green) are eclectic, and to an extent bohemian. I love the pom pom piping that comes with each and every one of them. These are what I call pom poms, round-shaped, cute, and light-bulb like!

Cushions with pom pom piping are also making it big on the chic decor scene. Look at these beautiful eclectic & nomadic cushions by Graham and Green – Autumn/Winter Collection 2011.
Finding descent pictures of pom pom curtains is next to impossible, but I was finally able to find this one over at Flickr. The pom pom detailing is both playful and fun and it can turn a ‘serious’ curtain into a fashionable piece of decor.
Personal accessorizing has not been left without a touch of pom pom. These two lovely variations from Akong London are so fun looking. They are so beautiful and creative. There’s a fleeting nomadic charm about them.

Pom Poms have also been seen on brand bags such as Stella McCartney’s Pom Pom Satin Bag (above). Some one should coin a term like ‘Pom Pom Chic’ for this one, I guess!
Alexander McQueen, on the other hand, presented a pom pom bag within its original nomadic, bohemian atmospheres a few years ago. If I were to choose a pom pom look for my bag, I would go for the one below by McQueen.
And if you were wondering (like I was) about how you can transfer your pom pom affection onto your own wardrobe, PS. I made This offers an easy tutorial on turning one of your old bags into a cool & current pom pom accessory. I’d like to quote the blog with some insightful fashion info about the new pom pom fad:
“Peruse your closet and prepare to POM! Currently, we’re seeing the fluffy pom pom detail all around us. Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney have made a seasonal statement with touches of pom poms on bags, whereas Sonia Rykiel took to the Pom as inspiration for the hair shown at her FW10 show. We can’t get enough of this puffy and whimsical wonder.”
And finally before I go grab myself a glue gun and a handful of pom poms, here are other brands and blogs carrying the pom pom look:
