Do you love your tried-and-true handbag, but yearn for a way to reinvent it? While it might seem an odd choice, It Girls like Emma Roberts, Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner are opting for giant fuzzy balls to do the trick. Specifically, we’re talking about the furry pompom bag charm trend that was once haute couture, but is now available for the masses. Added to the strap of a handbag, tote or backpack, the balls come in a variety of colors (some even with crazy faces or monogrammed letters) and in real and faux fur. Liked stuffed animals for adults, the pompoms an adorable, albeit silly way, to accessorize.
Fendi founded the pompom game last year, but with prices ranging from $600 to $1,500, the audience was narrow. With mainstream brands like Stella & Dot, Furla, and Marc and Graham jumping on the furry bandwagon with more affordable prices, everyone can now rock a giant fuzzy ball on their favorite bag.
