Heavy fringing or light trimming, bold statements or subtle elegance, the tassels and pom pom trend is one of such versatility with so many ways to finish off a garment. From dramatic lengths of roughly textured wool to dainty and elegant balls of fluff, designers from Emilio Pucci to Zuhair Murad have picked up the fun and quirky trend for their SS15 collections.The garments tend to be reliant on these finishes, usually leaving the remainder of the pieces somewhat plain, all extravagance, drama and intensity relying on these techniques.

Quite unexpectedly, tassel and pom pom featured garments on the high street are considerably a whole lot more exciting than those gracing the catwalks. Usually I find the runway so much more fun and enticing, but this time the roles are completely reversed! Bold and quirky prints enhance the oh-so-boho tassels and pom poms, creating a much more enticing appeal. Team these pieces with plainer items in order to let the audacious prints and cute finishes take centre stage in your outfit.
