The Poncho Sweater

What's more cozy and chic than an oversized cashmere sweater? The poncho, of course! During the winter months, it gets tough to create a unique outfit that feels warm and fun. There's only so many days in a week that you can get away with the traditional sweater + statement accessory combo (I am super guilty of this). For a trendier alternative, why not try wearing a sweater poncho? I love the simple design and modern details on this Black Poncho from Pink Slate Boutique. It comes in two colors- black and grey. I adore the fringey and ruffle detailing throughout. It keeps the outfit exceptionally interesting! 

If you're thinking of adding this sassy look to your wardrobe this winter, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
  • Size matters. Oversized ponchos are everything this winter, but make sure it's not too big. You don't want to look like you're draped in a carpet :).
  • Balance. To keep your outfit looking slim, be sure to pair with skinny jeans or leggings. If you're brave enough and the temps allow, try wearing with thigh-high boots for an ultra sleek look.
  • Belt it. If you are looking to create more dimensional outfit pair with a printed or texturized belt.
  • Versatility. Search for a poncho with a round or relaxed neckline, like the one pictured above. This will allow you to create multiple looks with one garment. You can wear it slightly off the shoulder, diagonal across the body, or as a traditional poncho (seen above).
So what do you think? Will you fall in love with the poncho trend this season? How would you wear it?
