The poncho scarf
"The word poncho is derived from Spanish and is an outer garment designed to keep the body warm. Ponchos have been used by the Native American people of Andes pre-Hispanic times and now are considered typical South American garments"
A poncho scarf is a chic, modern and versatile piece to add warmth and style to every look. The poncho scarf is the ideal layering piece- layer over everything from chunky knits to bodycon dresses and over denim or leather jackets to tailored separates.
The truth is there is something so incredibly cozy about them, yet still very chic and dressed up! And of course, you know how much I love that. I am also digging a simpler almost monochromatic color palette these days, opting for just a single pop of color or print. Today's hero piece is this gorgeous blanket coverup. Because it's such a statement piece I decided to pair it with simple black items. I also loved adding a pop of silver to my black and white look, so I opted for a pair of mirrored sunnies.
This elegant cover-up can be worn over the shoulders for a nonchalant twist, draped for a contemporary look or with belt at waist to show your feminine silhouette. Make a fashion statement with printed ponchos!
