Easy Draped Poncho

Outfit Details: Border Stripe Poncho Sweater, JCrew Pixie Pant, Nine West Studded Flats (also love this pair), Zara Bag (similar), Ray Ban Sunglasses

What's not to love about a cozy poncho sweater? The billowy wide sleeves and comfy fabric make it the perfect choice for this brisk fall weather. The trick to styling ponchos is to neutralize the rest of your outfit. Ponchos are traditionally rich in color and design, while at the same time they almost resemble a blanket. It's definitely a key piece for layering, but you don't want to overwhelm the look with anything too busy. I personally prefer a more streamlined bottom- think skinny pants, or in my case the new pixie pant from JCrew. Side note, these pants are heavenly. The stretchy fabric makes them completely comfortable, and they offer more structure than leggings. If I could wear them everyday, I would!

I'm on the shorter side and totally understand that ponchos can be intimidating because they consist of a whole lot of fabric, but if worn properly they will strike the right balance of boho-chic. I dare you to cozy up and give this trend a try.
