I really do love fall and this nice cool weather. If I haven’t mentioned before, I’ll say it again; fall time is the perfect time to experiment with new fashion trends! You can layer and cozy up, try new textures and lengths, try different combinations and have fun with your wardrobe!
One thing I haven’t really ever tried was wearing a poncho, let alone a turtleneck poncho! In past years, I never felt comfortable wearing anything remotely crew neck. I felt like I was suffocating. However with my new pixiecut, I always love the look of short hair with mock and turtlenecks. So I thought I would give it a try.
StyleWe was kind enough to send this beautiful poncho that is the softest item of clothing I own now. My piece of advice, if you’re like me and were apprehensive about turtlenecks, try to find one that is a very soft material. There is nothing worse than wearing something around your neck that is itchy as hell and leaves you with a suspicious looking rash. This poncho is SO INCREDIBLY soft and I just want to wear this all winter long. It’s probably softer than my cats fur…which is VERY soft.
I chose the grey poncho from the two options of black and grey, I know that’s surprising for me too. But I thought the grey could not only keep me warm, but with it being a lighter color and Southern California’s weather being so unpredictable, the grey could reflect the sun for those random warm spots throughout the day.
But because I love black so much, I decided to keep a solid black line on the bottom half of my outfit. The poncho is batwing and on the short side, I felt like keeping the bottom black would elongate my legs (like I need to be any taller) and look elegant without actually being uncomfortable. I’m wearing Norstrom Rack’s Articles of Society black jeans with some oxford style heel booties.
