As you can probably tell, these photos were taken before I left for Florida. What you probably can’t tell is that we chose the coldest/windiest day of the entire month to shoot these photos. At one point, a strong gust of wind blew the hat off of my head, which meant that I had to chase it half way down the street. Not fun guys, not fun.
But…you know what is fun? Wearing a poncho…especially when said poncho has a hood and fringe detailing. Ponchos are very popular this season, but they can be a little bit tricky to pull off. Here’s my tips for how to wear a poncho sweater:
Keep your outfit balanced.
Since ponchos are oversized, stick with leggings or skinny jeans, so you don’t look like you’re drowning in your outfit.
Stick with colours/patterns that you feel comfortable in.
If you typically wear neutrals, maybe this isn’t the time to experiment with brights.
Pair the poncho with your favourite accessories.
Do you feel polished when you put on a floppy hat or killer pair of heels? Throw them on with the poncho and see how it makes you feel!
Are you into the poncho trend this season?
