We are in the midst of fall, and there’s no better time than the present to break out that sweater poncho! It’s the perfect mix of a scarf and sweater, keeping you warm and fashion forward all at the same time. Sweater ponchos are one of the hottest fashion trends this fall—especially on college campuses. They’re an effortless look to throw on before class for those days when you stayed up all night studying but still want to look and feel your best.
This Fashionista paired her cream and black patterned poncho with a pair of lined leggings and zip-up black booties. For a more casual look you could change up the shoe and go for a bootie with a lower heel, or try a riding boot instead. One of my favorite aspects of the sweater poncho is there are so many ways to personalize it and tie in your own twist. It’s also incredibly versatile and able to go with jeans, leggings or even thrown over a dress.
With the holidays fast approaching, this is one of those items that would be a perfect addition to your holiday wish list! Some of my favorite sweater ponchos are from Francesca’s and Target. Both stores offer a variety of patterns and are perfect for a college student on a budget. For fall, I personally recommend sticking with warmer colors and patterns such as cream, brown or even a dark maroon. Blend in with those beautiful fall leaves while you still can. Bundle up in your comfy poncho and stay warm out there!
