STYLE GURU STYLE: The Fashionable Blanket

The excitement I had this winter when I discovered ponchos were a new fashion staple was unreal, maybe even a little lame at how something so simple could make me so happy. But if I were to wear one article of clothing for the rest of my life it would hands down be a poncho, it’s that serious.

This winter I took much of my inspiration from runway shows featured on Vogue’s website. In particular, the Salvatore Ferragamo fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection.  It features earthy tones that complement all skin types as well as various methods of color blocking. But as you can probably tell by the introduction, my favorite thing it featured was the ponchos.

With this new inspiration, I decided to create my own look. Choosing the colors of brown and red-oranges as well as picking the staple piece of a poncho to create my own more comfortable day look. You can catch me in this outfit running from class to class, grabbing a juice in the morning on my way to run errands or just lounging around and watching Netflix in my room. The “fashionable blanket” as I like to call it, makes rolling out of bed and still looking put together effortless. Therefore, I come to the conclusion that every girl needs one poncho in her life. I mean who wouldn’t want to wear a blanket all day and still have it called fashion? Blankets are the new street style people!
