Every women should have at least one special piece of clothing in their wardrobe, which they can just slide in and look like right off the runway. To me ponchos and capes do that magic. It’s a perfect weather to flaunt these blanket style toppers. Wearing a plaid poncho by Ralph Lauren over a black laced hem skirt and a pair of opaque tights.
Ponchos are great add-ons in a fickle weather as they give you enough breathing room. You can easily take them off and be in your light weight top when it suddenly gets warm in the middle of the day. A great replacement for a chunky sweater.
Carrying a plum clutch by Sanctuary to compliment black and gray plaid. Love the cute asymmetrical chain detail designed to give a moto-inspired vibe.
These Saint Laurent pumps are one of my favorites, bought them two years back on sale . Love the pop of bright blue color on black.
There are few must-haves to make the poncho look stunningly fashionable –
1) If decide to wear pants, make sure they are skinny to balance the bagginess of the poncho.
2) If wearing a skirt or a dress with hemline less than 4 inch beyond the poncho then always wear opaque tights to avoid the “missing pants” look ;-). We all know what that is. I have been through that once wearing an oversized sweater on a pair of shorts. I realized something doesn’t appear right when I saw myself in a picture :O.
3) Last but not the least – Wear high-heels if you can as poncho makes you appear shorter.
