STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Back in Style

There are many trends in fashion that have come and gone, even quite a few we look back at and laugh—queue the capri, gaucho pants from middle school. Every once in a while though, these pieces pop back up in the fashion world and make a reappearance. The trend that has been making appearances on the runways lately is the poncho. This look first appeared in fashion around 10 years ago with high necks and lots of fringe. Now they are back with a whole new makeover. You’ll see celebrities and fashion icons featuring the piece with more of a cape-like essence.

This Fashionista is showing off her street style in Madison with the newest addition to her wardrobe. She is portraying to the trend perfectly with her printed, fringe poncho and neutral colors. The key to the outfit is layering. She picked the perfect Free People long-sleeve that peeks out from the poncho, adding that elegant lace touch. The poncho isn’t the only thing that is making a reappearance in this outfit. This Fashionista is wearing her mom’s over-the-knee boots from 1990! The ankle straps and the silver adornments along the height of the boot give it that vintage feel that has been so popular. Since the rest of the outfit is making such a statement, she keeps the jewelry simple and is wearing her two David Yurman bracelets.

The trick to styling this outfit is to know what to pair with it and how to layer. It can be worn casually, or even dressed up for a fancier look. For the colder weather, even throw on your favorite jeans and a pair of booties. Take advantage of the trend before it fades back into the history books.
