Grownup Pom-Poms


Despite the title, this is not a T-and-A post. It's really about for-reals pom-poms. I've loved 'em since I was a wee one. See?

But, the whole pom-pom look is trickier to pull off as an adult. Luckily, there are whimsical options out there for those of us who can no longer rock a bare midriff adorned by those sweet little tufts of puffs. This pompom crest tee ($68) from Anthropologie is Option 1.

 
Probably the easiest thing to do is rock 'em in a scarf which tones down the junior/cutesiness factor quite a bit.
 
 
Option 2: La Fiorentina scarf ($58) from Nordstrom.
 
And finally, for you big spenders..... Option 3: A pricey ($155) Tory Burch "Reva" scarf that is just too fun in those bright colors.
 
 
A bonus...
 
 
This Iztapa pompom poncho ($78), also from Anthropologie, is subtle.

OMG, you were such a cute kid!

I like the scarf options, you're right, it's an easy way to wear the poms and add color to your outfit.

Not a huge pom pom fan myself, but I do find it an interesting addition to an outfit!
