This summer, we've spotted pom-poms on sandals, straw bags and off-the-shoulder tops, but you'd be surprised how at home these colorful tufts feel placed on — or a few inches below — your earlobe. That's right, we're taking the pom-pom earring trend into fall. And let's not forget about their fringe counterparts — tassels; we've fallen for both decorative edges, because they provide playful touches and throw color punches when we're really just in the mood for wearing a classic white tee.
Of course, most of us equate the shoulder-grazing dangles with spring and summer festival season, but the bite-size poms transition quite well into fall with the use of a warmer color palette; we found plenty of options in primrose pink, dark red and a tan toast (sans avocado). As for tassels, a statement metal stud with a contrast chain in gold will go well with fall's fancier occasions. In the two galleries below, we've combed through the best earrings the internet has to offer, looking for reasonably priced, statement-making silhouettes that will go with your live-in knits and boots come fall.
