A poncho can dress up casual attire, add detail to a plain dress or even work as a beach cover-up. With so many uses it seems silly not to invest in one. This Fashionista plans on using hers to dress down and add detail to sophisticated summer outfits.

Notice the basics of this Fashionista’s featured outfit. She is wearing an American Eagle Outfitters black crop top with white denim shorts. Complimenting the simple pieces are an elegant Francesca’s bracelet and gold necklace. The details from the jewelry and the crop top’s lace form a sophisticated, stylish outfit on their own. But this Fashionista doesn’t want to settle for plain and classy. She wants to give her outfit that extra oomph.

This is where the poncho comes into play. This Fashionista chooses a blue striped poncho from American Eagle Outfitters. Its denim feel gives the outfit more of a casual chic look. The extra detail also adds a whole new air to the outfit. While simple can be nice, this Fashionista wants to make a statement. What poncho do you plan on making your own statement with this summer?
