This month’s love goes out to…
Or would you rather call it a poncho? Anyway, it’s hot!
If there’s one thing I like about winters, it would have to be the fact that it gives us the opportunity, or moreover the necessity to layer garment over garment to keep warm. This is one of the reasons why, in September, I feel like “Yes, let the winter begin”, cause at that time I have a color palette in mind that I would love to rock using knitwear, a woolen coat, a cashmere scarf and maybe some leather accessories.
So of course I am a huge fan of the poncho cause this could add yet another layer to our outfits and help us bundle up. I love that it is so oversized. It gives me the ultimate winterish feeling.
Today’s fashionable ponchos come in various looks and often include hoods and pockets to answer to our needs for comfort and practicality. The materials, too, range from heavy fabrics to light silks and a range of fur treatments, all great to put on top of a leather jacket or woolen coat.
Let me know what you think of this trend!
