The struggle of staying warm but staying stylish this winter season is over. Fleece ponchos are a big trend at the University of Delaware, as the temperature gets colder. I have been seeing plenty of girls wearing solid, cotton dresses with fleece ponchos over them. Not only are these ponchos warm, they are also super comfortable. They are perfect for a lazy day when you don’t feel like putting in too much effort on your appearance. They make for a quick and simple outfit for a day in the library during finals week as well!

This Fashionista is featured wearing a black cotton T-shirt dress with a plaid, fleece poncho over it. She paired her outfit with burgundy-colored “Chelsea boots” which are also another popular trend this season. I personally think that the color of her booties makes the poncho pop and brings the outfit together. A poncho with as much print as this Fashionista’s is definitely the focal point to any outfit. If you are feeling a simple day maybe with just black leggings and a black long-sleeved shirt, a poncho is a great way to enhance your outfit and make it a lot more exciting and trendy.

Although the temperatures are quickly dropping, the dress trend is still staying strong. To keep yourselves even warmer this season, the poncho trend could easily be paired with a long-sleeved shirt with jeans or leggings and over-the-knee boots.

How To: Do you usually go for any new trend that allows you to stay as comfortable and is as effortless as possible? This is the perfect trend for you! Pair your warm, oversized poncho with a stretchy pair of leggings and UGG boots for the most comfortable look. For a dressier look, pair your poncho with jeans and boots or ballet flats.
