Poncho - Yay or Nay?

If I were to have Captain as my stylist, I would never see a single poncho in my closet.  If there is a single clothing item that he hates, it would have to be the famous poncho.  The teasing statement that normally comes out of him when he sees me in one is "Baby, are you forgetting your sombrero?" 

Instead I love ponchos, I love how subtle and easy they can be and the bonus comes when the material used is correct.  It will fall beautifully and like the one I have on here the material is cooling on the warm day and comfortable during the colder. In my opinion, choosing the right color or pattern is important in making sure that your poncho is a fashion statement instead of a costume for a theme party.  Choose one with any plain basic colors instead of the ones with loud patterns or colors and you are set to look so effortless yet chic at the same time! See here for another poncho look.

So, what is your take on poncho?  Yay or Nay?









I'm linking up together with other fabulous ladies on Visible Monday over at Not Dead yet Style and Monday Bloom Link Up at DC In Style so do check them out! :)

  1. It certainly looks good on you!
    I don't wear any sweaters (just not my thing) and also don't have a poncho. Love the new capes instead of a jacket though.

    Most men prefer clothes that somehow show a woman's figure (definitely my Mr C)and therefore they are probably not so much into ponchos.
    But being grown up women we wear what we want anyways, don't we?

    Have a fabulous day,

  35. So nice to meet you! This is just the kind of combination I admire. Sleek, great shapes and colors and your little heels just make it. Not costumey at all ... although,your comment made me think of Clint Eastwood in the *Fistful of Dollars* days. Just the comment, NOT your perfectly proportioned pancho! Good for your tiny frame.

  40. I also think ponchos are very easy and stylish when paired like you have with a striking coloured pair of skinnies, but I'm a fan of that kind of effortless boho style. I love your new Zara shoes too <3

  53. With ponchos, I think it's all about having the right one - green and red stripes would be a bad choice ;) But this simple, elegant black version is just lovely, and does look enviably comfortable!

  56. i love ponchos, especially when they are styled so simply like this! they are a statement in themselves so it's always nice to see them taking center stage. the colours work so well too :)
