Simi’s Kitschy Statement Neckpiece Is So Hippie Chic!
Pom poms are not just known as a cheerleader’s ensemble add-on. The fluffy pieces have in fact received a status upgrade and are a spring accessory essential for every IT girl. I remember back in the days, every 90s kid owned a hair-tie that was adorned with one pom pom, if not many (did you own one too?). I always thought of them as cute, when not in excess. They helped add just the right amount of colour to any outfit. Also, these adornments give off a spring-ready vibe. The runways saw a pom pom display for Spring 2016: earrings in Prada, shoes in Sam Edelman and Aquazurra among others. And seems like the accessory is having a moment now. And why not, they are playful and fun, and when paired with the right ensemble, can add to the boho vibe of a look.
This week’s pick for #HauteList is this totally hippie-chic pom pom neckpiece that I found at Zara. You know what’s really cool about it? It’s got cowrie shells and tassels on it too; all this on a chunky beaded silver neckpiece. Cowrie shell jewellery makes me remember all the beach vacations I had with family as a kid, when a DIY shell neckpiece or anklet was an accessory that deserved to be flaunted. This Zara neckpiece is colourful enough to add to your pristine white flowy slip dress. Style it with a pair of tan sandals, and you’re ready to rock summer.
