For an easy yet chic look, look no further than the poncho. Because ponchos accentuate the shoulders and slightly hang over the thighs, they’re the perfect go-to clothing item—and for so many more reasons than that. First off, their length covers two-thirds of your outfit already, which means you’re outfit is almost done once you pick the poncho you want to wear. After that, all you have to do is combine the poncho with form-fitting leggings or jeans. Easy, yes? For the final step, add your favorite pair of shoes and jewelry. Getting ready should take no longer than ten minutes (minus the time it takes to do hair and makeup, of course!)
Ponchos are also great because they’re extremely comfortable yet stylish at the same time. You can achieve so many different looks with them, whether that’s a chill bohemian look or a sophisticated one. Of course, the magic is all in how you decide to style them. We came up with a few tips to get you started.
You can wear a poncho in two ways. The first is to wear it straight so that it hangs against your shoulders evenly. You can also wear it asymmetrically, in which you pull one side of the poncho below your shoulder to achieve the “off-the-shoulder” look. Interchanging between these two different looks is a great way to experiment and have fun with ponchos.
For instance, wearing a poncho with black skinny jeans and cool sneakers will instantly give you an urban vibe. If you want to go for a bohemian look, try adding a floppy hat, leggings, and turquoise jewelry. Combining skinny jeans and classic high heels with your poncho, on the other hand, will create an ultra-feminine and classy look. This isn’t all, either—there are so many more looks you can create. It really depends on what your personal style is.
