Poncho + Hoodie

I’m having fun exploring ways to style a poncho. For an extra casual (and warm) touch, I like a hoodie underneath.


Poncho, Newport News. Hoodie, Old Navy (thrifted). Gingham shirt, American Eagle (thrifted). Pants, Forever 21. Boots, Vince Camuto. Bag, Mossimo. Earrings, Night Owl Crafts. Sunglasses, Xhilaration.



Past stylings of this red, ruffle-edged poncho:


Do you wear ponchos? How do you style the garment?

I like this poncho, epsecially with the houndstooth mini in the thumbnail. I can't say that I've ever worn one, though. I do have a couple of caftans, which I like to wear over turtlenecks or tees with short skirts or jeans.

I am fundamentally allergic to ponchos, BUT that hoodie with the casual hair and air and boots make me love your look today! I even have to admit some of your other poncho stylings make me reach for the "like" button, proof positive that if YOU love a piece of clothing and it makes YOU feel fab, people are going to adore the way YOU come across, regardless of the ensemble's components.

Love your red poncho and those drool-worthy boots!

I actually thrifted a wool knit poncho, and I really want to wear it.. but I've majorly struggled with how to style it so far.

If I could find just the right poncho, I'd do it like this! I love how you've styled it!

Meredith said...

oooh! thanks for posting these poncho styling ideas. I'm now second-guessing my intention to return an Ellen Tracy poncho I snagged at TJMaxx for a steal ;)

You really make the poncho look cute, and the bright red and ruffles are wonderful.

I'm avoiding ponchos, even with the resurgence, I will never shake the memories of the last time they were in style and I got made fun of at school and told I looked like a lamp shade.

Love your red poncho - I have a few but have always picked more subtle colours - I need to change that!

Here's me in mine last month:

I never wear my poncho.
Have you ever tried it as a skirt ?

Kasmira said...

This is crazy, but I've been reading your blog from time to time and when I checked it today I noticed your boots at my very first glance...Vince Camuto Nordstrom special limited edition boots!? I own them too!!!! Haha I sound crazy but I'm literally sitting here, wearing mine as I type this and I got so excited that i just had to comment. So in love with these boots!

Kasmira said...

Olivia - aren't they the best boots? Comfy and attention-grabbing!
