Prior to this year, I was never a “poncho wearer.” Personally, I really didn’t see the need or use for them in my wardrobe, but after some careful fashion research and experimentation of my own, I finally see what I’ve been missing! Aside from being trendy, ponchos are quite practical when it comes to layering throughout the seasons. While they can serve as light layers in the spring and fall seasons, worn similarly to how I have styled the look for this post, they can also be layered more heavily. For example, during the winter months, you could layer a poncho over a sweater and leather jacket combo for an extra warm, “Lenny Kravitz-esque” look. The poncho I have styled is consisted of warm fall tones that perfectly compliment the fallen leaves around the city but not to fret, if this color palette is not to your liking ponchos come in a variety of textures and colors in almost all trendy retail stores. To balance the loose fit of my outer layer, I opted for a form fitting top with lace-up detail (another very trendy item), high wasted jeans “Mom jeans,” and my favorite Topshop tortoise heel boots. So, if you couldn’t tell by this post I am definitely sold on the poncho trend. I mean, who doesn’t love a blanket they can walk around in all day?!
