5 Ways to Style a Knit Poncho This Winter


Be honest, folks: as much as we love winter, the fashion can be a bit disappointing. Yes, the first few months of scarves, sweaters, and knee high boots can be fun, but by the time New Year’s eve rolls around the look is pretty much played out. We plead for Punxsutawney Phil to award us with early spring, but if he doesn’t… we end up stuck in a fashion rut.

What if I told you it didn’t have to be this way? What if department stores and designers had an alternative to the average winter wear - an alternative that would make you excited to hit the streets and strut your stuff? Believe it or not, it’s all true, and I have just one word for you: poncho. That’s right, knit and cashmere ponchos are back in a big way this winter, and with the right ensemble you can turn your look from bland to fab!

All Black Everything

As Neiman Marcus once said, “Women who wear black lead colorful lives.” Give the monochrome look a try this season and you’ll end up feeling invincible! Dress in black from head to toe with your shoes, pants or skirt, top, and poncho all in sync. No one will want to mess with someone looking that chic and tough.


Bring in a Belt

One of the biggest complaints people have about ponchos is the wide silhouette they present. However, as fashionista Lauren Messiah says, one simple belt can accentuate your waist once again. Once you have your poncho on, put a belt over it to cinch in the fabric. You’ll be warm and you’ll have a look that’s both unique and incredibly cool.

Pair with Leggings

If you’re looking for comfort over anything else but still want to look fashionable, look no further. Leggings are primed and ready to become the hot new trend in 2017, and under a poncho they are the epitome of comfy, yet classy style. If you want the look to be a little more dressed up, simply style with heels and a polished purse for a versatile, elegant look.

Get Slinky with a Skirt


Yes I know, we’ve spent most of this blog talking about winter clothes. Skirts, you might be thinking, are far from being winter wear. Well, that depends entirely on how you style it. A short or mid-length skirt paired with a poncho and tall boots can be a very classy winter look. Marie Claire sang the praises of the poncho and skirt look, as well.

Let Your Poncho Make a Statement

Stylecaster calls the poncho a way to “boost your wardrobe’s drama.” How can the poncho live up to such lofty expectations? Simple - by being a bold, loud fashion statement. Yes, the monochrome look we talked about earlier is great (especially on those days that you want to let your inner rock star free), but sometimes you need a bright color or a bold print to make your poncho work. The key to mastering the bold poncho is dressing down your other clothes; settle with jeans and a tee or button down. Then let your poncho do the talking for you - and don’t forget to strut!
