To Pom Pom or not to Pom Pom that is the Question...

To Pom Pom or not to Pom Pom that is the Question...

It is officially full-on winter mode in NYC, and we've had our first flurry-ice-snow melange hit the streets. We started noticing headgear trends and spotted winter hats with pom poms. In one particular swathe of the Upper East Side, we noticed them everywhere. (We've also been catching glimpses of the Canada Goose coats that our Men's Editor, Jon Rich, wrote about.) One notable version of a pom pom hat sighting included sequined and bejeweled scarabs contrasted against a black cashmere hat. Another look was the pom pom hat avec puffer coat styled over printed spandex and sneakers - a stylish and fun work-out look. We even spotted a graceful mix of the pom pom hat, in all white, over a camel, alpaca wrap coat and wide-leg black trousers topped off by a boxy, top-handle work bag. Work-clad men will often sport their favorite sports team pom pom hat (right now American football) on their way to the office, which offers a cheeky contrast against the monotone, corporate color palette that often characterizes Park Avenue. We came away with this - the pom pom is versatile and can be appropriate at all times, especially when the temps are low. Gearing up for a ski weekend, we might be adding a pom pom to our winter style repertoire in the near future. Go on...get your pom pom on. Click the pictures for details.
