pom poms seem to be the fun accessory of the moment in London, so what do you think? will you pom pom or not ?

Customise with pom poms
If you're into the current 50s look - netted flared skirts, tight-fitting, buttoned girly cardis, and rock and roll candy shaded shoes - you can add some extra 50s flavour to your wardrobe with pom poms. Inspired by cheerleaders and ice skaters the classic pom pom is fun and finding its way onto all sorts of clothes and accessories at the moment. Head to the flagship branch of Miss Selfridge (314 Oxford Street, London W1) for a selection of Pretty Banat's cute vest tops and skirts featuring pom poms (priced from £15). Of course making your own pom poms is child's play: you just need some cardboard (cut out two circles, remove the middles) and wool (wind the wool around and around until you reach the desired size). They are a really easy and frivolous way to funk up bags, belts, T-shirts, trainers and even your mobile phone.

For detailed instructions on how to make a pom pom, visit hintsandthings.co.uk.

I think it's cute, but not for everyday accesorising (is that even a word? ). But if you are fully kitted out in a fifties look than it's a nice touch

the look is cute, but a little too *cheerleaderish* (go figure) for my style

I agree with Elle (and I was a cheerleader ). However it's a little too "high school" for my fashion tastes now.....but very cute though.

They remind me of cute little children...the ones who wear the cute little pom pom hair ties when they have their hair in pigtails..I was a cheerleader..my time with pom poms is over!

It can look fun and great (as Galliano did).. but it can hardly make a statement.

I have a few knit winter hats topped with pom poms. They're not really alternative, it's true, but they are cute.

I'd love to see your work, Space. Please post pics when you can.
