How to Wear a Cashmere Poncho:
1. Styled over a collared shirt
Layering knitwear over a shirt is already a match-made-in-heaven, and a poncho can be styled in the same way. Add a touch of tailoring with a collared shirt underneath your poncho, to create a smart-casual look that offers a chic juxtaposition between the floaty curves of the poncho and the sharper edges of the collar.
2. Styled over a dress
Ponchos have a place in both your casual and occasion wear wardrobe, and can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. Perhaps you’re heading for a day at the races, or a party in the evening; either way, a poncho is a chic alternative to a jacket or coat, and a warmer alternative to a shawl or scarf. The flattering and loose-fitting shape of a poncho can complement a multitude of dress styles, from floaty to fitted, short to maxi.
3. Styled with jeans
Wear your poncho over skinny skinny jeans for a beautiful silhouette, ‘mom’ jeans for a relaxed look, or go retro with some wide leg or flared jeans. This is an easy way to style a poncho with your everyday casual wardrobe. The poncho adds a light layer of warmth, whilst adding some beautiful style and movement to your outfit.
4. Over a polo neck sweater
A poncho can help to turn a simple, casual outfit into a flattering and feminine one. A cosy cashmere poncho is a wonderful addition to your autumn-winter wardrobe; style the floaty layer over a fitted polo-neck sweater for a warm, comfortable and effortless look.
5. With your loungewear
Do you want to feel relaxed and comfortable? One of the cosiest ways to wear a poncho is with your go-to loungewear. Dress your poncho over a pair of leggings, or style with your favourite pair of joggers for the ultimate cosy and casual off-duty outfit. Sometimes only a loose-fitting outfit will do, and the poncho is the perfect layer for those days!
