Well, I think Fall is here to stay this time. It’s been so chilly in the mornings and I couldn’t be happier. This time of year, when the air is crisp and the scent of pumpkin fills the air, happens to be my favorite season for fashion. If you live in an area that experience Fall temperatures, then you’re familiar with the bittersweet task of incorporating outerwear back into your wardrobe and saying farewell to your beach cover ups. With temperatures low enough to call for a light jacket or sweater, having the perfect fall “cover-up” is necessary. That’s where the poncho comes in. A hybrid between of half sweater, half jacket, the poncho is one of the hottest must haves this season.
While generally described as billowy and shapeless, ponchos have gotten the a bad rap in the fashion department. Until now. Cozy up with a poncho this Fall and create a feminine and figure flattering look by following a few simple steps. Avoid looking frumpy by balancing a poncho with a pair of fitted jeans. Selecting the right poncho for yourself will convey sophistication, style and personality, so chose a poncho accordingly. If you’re vertically challenged like me, avoid looking like the Three Wise Men, by choosing a shorter length poncho. Maximize the chic factor and belt a poncho to accentuate the waist. To create an easy going look, pair a poncho with a casual pair of boots. The best part? While rocking a poncho, your outfit underneath is not easily visible, so regardless of what your wearing underneath, you’ll look totally put together. Hello lazy days!
Are you into this trend or is it too much like wearing a blanket out in public?
