While coats might still be the last thing on your mind right now, I present you the perfect alternative: a nice, warm and stylish poncho. In a season led by runway parades showing nothing but warm and snuggly coats in oversized shapes and exaggerated proportions, autumn just wouldn’t be nearly as fashionable without these gorgeous garments.
At the moment I am loving this (camel-coloured) poncho by H&M I’ve been seeing on so many stylish Chictopians. Not only its shape, but also colour, price tag and material are perfect. But most and foremost I must say that this versatile item sets a real example of perfect, effortless, comfortable fall wear, easily personalized and modified to style and weather conditions.
Wearing this poncho with only tights underneath, Honneybunny shows us the true uniqueness of this item. Using cute accessories, she manages to go back to the essence of the garment, bringing out its true beauty without making it look bland.
This girl likes to call her poncho: “sancho” saying it’s “a key piece for fall, and in camel, no less!” cayleem hits the mark right there. She chose for a lovely combination of modern accessories giving her total look a real cosy twist with the camel poncho. This outfit lays a little bit in line with Honneybunny’s in the way that it embodies the soul of the poncho styled with accessories, making it look absolutely compelling.
Everyone with fair skin or skin that looks better with silver jewellery should follow Annebeth’s advice and either go for the silver or black variant of this item or use a chunky necklace or scarf between the poncho and your face (more about the camel trend here). Annebeth did the best job layering this grey poncho with her adorable pink H&M dress, this girl “never piles on the accessories” which makes this outfit approachable and suited for many occasions.
Showing us exactly how versatile this piece of clothing can be: Daniel gives it a twist using thigh highs, boots and a denim shirt. Looking truly avant-garde Daniel manages to show us the fact that the beauty of this piece lies in the fact that anyone can pull it of, you don’t need to be a boy or a girl, size 0 or plus sized, a poncho will work for everyone. And no need to panic they’ll run out of your size as it is a one size flatters all kind of garment…
Iris also bought this piece, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing her twist on this trend.
I hope you enjoyed my first editorial about fashion. You might want to run to H&M now, in order to get yourself this gorgeous item. I definitely know what I’ll be doing tomorrow…
Thank you all for reading and thank you Honneybunny, cayleem, Annebeth and irisanddaniel for your lovely daily inspiration!!
