Alternative Cover Up

Some days it’s freezing in the UK and other days you can forget that we’re actually heading into winter. So how do you plan your cover ups for these unexpected days? I find myself switching between a light bomber jacket to a longline or boucle coat.

But on those days where that winter sun really hits me, it’s time to throw on a poncho  which is both comfortable and makes for a statement look.

I was drawn to this poncho a few years ago in TK Maxx as I loved the aztec print and the tassel details. As it is a more covered up poncho I knew I didn’t need to stress about finding something to wear underneath. I often play it safe and just wear it with black skinny jeans and my heeled boots (both from Topshop) for a more simple boho style. As usual, I can not leave without my silver hoops just for a touch of street style to a classy look.

This year I would like to try styling the poncho with a skirt ( possibly a midi skirt to create a more Celiné style and maybe with some seriously high heeled boots). I love that ponchos add some character to my knitwear section and stops me from getting too comfortable and slightly bored of wearing jumpers and cardigans every day.

I think its best to choose dark blues, greys or neutral coloured ponchos so that you will wear it for a few autumnal seasons and I personally think they look more high quality and stylish.

Do you have any poncho tips?
