FASHION FROM ABROAD: Poncho Perfection

Fashion From Abroad

The days here in Spain are getting warmer and warmer, and while finding that in-between piece for keeping warm without being too hot can sometimes be difficult, this Fashionista came up with the perfect solution. Today’s Fashionista chose to stun everyone by throwing on this amazing emerald green poncho. From the tassels to the bold color, everything about this piece is so unique – I was obsessed from the second I spotted it. This outfit looks so well thought out and put together, and that is the beauty in wearing a poncho. A poncho like this is a statement piece. By pairing it with a simple look, like jeans and boots, you can create a really trendy look that will surely set you apart from the crowd, and it won’t take much thought to throw together. When I saw this poncho I immediately thought of the cool '60s inspired ponchos by Wildfox that I still lust over.

This Fashionista’s poncho was what drew me to her originally, but at second glance I discovered an even more intriguing and distinctive element to her outfit that I initially missed. While this Fashionista is sporting a simple leather messenger bag, jeans and brown chunky boots, she adds a style ingredient that I’ve never seen before: matching silk scarves tied around each ankle of her boots. I simply adored this creative idea and thought it was an amazing way to tie in the bright color of her poncho. This is a trend everyone should take note of because I certainly think it could be the next big thing. Kudos to your creativity Fashionista!
