Summer is upon us, and you know what that means: time for summer fashion trends! One of my favorites this year (which is popping up everywhere from fast fashion stores like Forever 21 to designer brands like Kate Spade) is the pom pom.

This colorful accent is fun, flirty, and perfect for the season, not to mention it looks cute on everything from dresses to accessories. 

Read on to see my favorite pom-pom-accented pieces that are sure to complete your summer wardrobe! 

Apparel and Shoes

Products: Shirt – Target, Shorts – Dillards, Blue Dress – Forever 21, Nude Flats – Charlotte Russe, Black Flats – Forever 21, Foot Chain – Forever 21, Black Dress – Forever 21

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about clothing this season, it’s that pom poms can make anything more fun

I love the way these colorful little balls look hanging in a garland off the edges of shirt sleeves, dress hems, and the bottom of shorts! I also like the idea of a cluster of pom poms hanging off of the collar of a dress as an accent, as seen on this pale blue version. 

Speaking of accents, pom poms on shoes are so adorable. Nothing makes a better pop than a few well-placed poms hanging off the straps of a pair of beachy summer flats. Try black if you want to be more subtle, or nude with rainbow pom poms for some extra flare. 

If you really want to be a fashion risk-taker, try wearing this colorful foot chain to turn any pair of strappy sandals into multi-colored gladiator sandals!


Products: Backpack – ModCloth, Choker – Ruche, Necklace – Target, Bracelet – Forever 21, Tote Bag – Forever 21, Crossbody – Forever 21

Pom pom accessories are an adorable way to spice up any outfit! 

These range from subtle to bold: for a more casual look, try a bag with a pom pom charm, or go a bit louder with a bright crossbody with colorful tassels around the edges. 

If you’d like to represent this trend in your jewelry, try a long necklace, fun choker, or colorful tasseled bracelet! 


L-R (all Dillards): Green, Coral, Blue

Can we say new favorite swimsuit style? Pom-pom-accented bikinis might be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. 

Dillards is currently killing the game right now with a multitude of colorful styles, so pick your favorite hue and you’re all set for the summer! (The coral one in the center would be my personal choice.)
