You have probably seen it all with the recent craze of tassel earrings, but fashion is bringing a young twist to the table with the pom-pom earrings. The new trend that is calling everyone’s names is fun, mobile, and flirty. If you’re tired of earrings weighing you down and hurting those precious lobes, you’re in for a treat. This trend is made for women who aren’t afraid to take that leap and express their playful side. Pom poms were previously seen on lace up sandals and key chains on bags. Now, pom-pom earrings own the spotlight and we’re loving it! Scroll down to see our top 4 reasons for adoring these earrings.

Aside from being incredibly bouncy and soft, pom-pom earrings have some interesting history. The word pom-pom originated from “pompon” – a French word used during the 18th century. Hungarian soldiers wore them on their heads as part of their uniforms and caught the attention of people across Europe. Many people added their own spin on it and it was a sense of pride. Perhaps more interesting is that people in South America wore different colored pompoms as a signal of their marital status.

Whatever your reason for wearing the adorable pom-pom earrings, you can be confident that you will always look trendy.

Pom-Pom Earrings – Versatility

Ok we know what you’re thinking – can pom-pom earrings really be worn with anything? The answer is yes! Don’t let the haters tell you pom poms are only meant for certain outfits. You can always add a lively touch to your overall ensemble by adding some cute and frivolous pom poms. Whether you are grabbing brunch with your girlfriends or meeting friends for a night out, you will truly stand out in a pair of these earrings. You can choose to wear a pair with multiple little dangling puffs or a large pair for a bold, statement look. If you’re going for a look that is more neutral, try to pair your outfit with a pair of gray pom-pom earrings.

Young, Wild & Free

One of the best things about these earrings are their ability to make you seem young and free. Although there are no magical anti-aging properties in a pair of pom-pom earrings, they will definitely make you feel younger than ever. Feel the wind breeze through your hair and inhale all the good vibes with the power of these trendy earrings. Pair these earrings with a printed wrap skirt and a halter bodysuit for a look that will be sure to turn heads.

Light + Mobile

Every woman loves a pair of earrings that are stylish and more importantly, light. Who likes having their lobes dragged down by a hefty pair of earrings? Yes, they may be stylish, but they are definitely not working out for you, hun. This is why pom-pom earrings are the best solution for you! They make just enough of a statement as the classic tassel earrings, but are far more mobile, whimsical and free. Don’t you just love earrings that are easy to wear? For a laid-back, classic look, wear a pair of fringe jeans, a tucked in button-up top, a denim jacket and mules.

Poppin’ Shades

For the ultimate playful look, make sure to add those colors! Make use of a variety of shades and textures for your go-to pom-pom look. These colorful and vibrant tufts are what every stylish woman is flaunting. Dress up your outfit with a large pair of yellow pom-pom earrings and a long white jumpsuit. Block your colors to have a chic balance with your outfit and accessories. Add a long pink necklace and top it off with a pair of blue platform sandals.

These earrings are the trendiest pair of earrings you will own for some time! We hope you enjoyed this article and come to see why we love pom-poms so much! Share with your friends and let them know your favorite part about wearing this trend.
