I think Poncho's defy the odds when it comes to fashion. They're kind of idiotic at first glance, and you can definitely end up looking mumu-esque if you go about it wrong. Thank goodness the tribal crazy hasn't completely ebbed yet. It's allowed me to embrace more ethnic and urban looking ponchos that have a sleek, boho look to them.
This southwestern example is loose enough to balance the proportions of my Rag and Bone skinny jeans. And sleeves help to keep any poncho from looking too over-sized.
The above "skinnies" have a wonderfully, stretchy yet comfy fit.The cognac color livens up everything but still works as a staple and a neutral. Best of all, they're on sale at Bloomingdales right now. Get 'em before they're gone here!
As for cool, transitional ponchos, you can find a fabulous alternative to mine here
And if you love neutrals, you can snag the grey version for 30% off as well, available online here!
