I’m all about being warm and comfortable, especially this time of year. (I may be used to cold weather in Buffalo, but that doesn’t mean I like it!) If you’re looking to be warm and comfortable this season, ponchos (aka “capes”) are the perfect top layer for any fall outfit.
This first one may not be a traditional poncho; it’s more like a long, blanket-style vest. The Starbucks barista tried complimenting me on it but he wasn’t sure what to call it and frankly, neither did I. But for the sake of this post, I’ll call it a poncho 🙂
Whatever you want to call it, it may not have sleeves, but it’s the warmest thing ever! The heavy wool material is super cozy, and surprisingly not itchy. I originally saw this poncho on Out + Outfit and knew I had to have it! I’ve worn it on warmer days with a plain tank top or on colder days with a long-sleeve shirt or sweater. Similar to the blanket scarf, I like to keep the foundation of the outfit simple with ponchos. They are essentially the “star” of the outfit, so let them shine!
I came across this second poncho while aimlessly “window shopping” online. There happened to be a 40% off sale online only, and you know I can’t resist a good sale!
It’s more lightweight than the previous poncho, but still super cozy. I love the fringe at the bottom and the different colored stripes. It’s all about the details!
