A beautifully made cashmere poncho will be your new best friend during the colder months! Layer over a thin knit turtleneck and some wide or straight leg twill pants for an easy, cute and comfortable winter chic look. Accessories with chunky platform boots, plenty of resin jewelry, a knitted beanie and even a cashmere scarf to really up the cosy factor. If you're looking to go a little more statement, swap the twill pants out for a pair of killer kick flare leather trousers - warm and outrageously stylish!
Jeans and A Cute Top
We all know the classic trope of jeans-and-a-nice-top, it’s every woman’s go to when she doesn’t really know what to wear, she doesn’t want to put in much effort and she still wants to look fab. Looking to elevate your jeans and a nice top combo for autumn and winter? A crochet or cashmere poncho is the way to do it! Layer over jeans and a simple silk cami for an elegant nod to 90s style. Wear with strappy stiletto heels, a micro mini clutch and a dusting of shimmery eyeshadow for an ethereal and easy outfit that will stand out from the crowd.
A little 60s style is never off the menu, and a poncho is a great way of combining that iconic mod look with the hippie chic fashion that lived alongside it. Start with some statement knee high leather boots and pair with an A-line mini skirt. Wear with loosely curled hair, graphic eyeliner and some cat eye pastel sunnies for a striking look that you’ll love wearing in spring and autumn.
A one tone look is all kinds of elegant and a great means of making a statement without going too overboard. Choose your favourite hue and find it in different textures, saturations and patterns. Red is a great tone for playing with, choose Burgundy pants, a soft pink poncho, tomato red lipstick and a burnt orange handbag.
That’s right, you can even chill out in your poncho when you’re just hanging on the couch! Wear a silky soft cashmere poncho with your favourite pair of leggings or some wide leg knit pants. Some plush socks and a cup of tea are your perfect finishing touches for this one!
The best thing about investing in a thin yet high quality poncho is that it can actually work for all seasons! Throw on a thin knit poncho when you’re headed down to your local beach for a seriously comfortable, breathable beach cover up that won’t catch all manners of sand and salt.
