How to Wear a Poncho

January 8, 2020

I LOVE a good poncho as seen in my post about four ways to style the neutral one below! Whether it is open front/cape style or full body, they are so cozy and perfect for winter! Over the years of blogging, I have styled multiple ponchos multiple ways. Today I am sharing some tips on how to wear a poncho.

How to Wear a Poncho with Leggings

Pairing a poncho with leggings is probably my favorite way to style a poncho. They are by nature a little oversized and pair easily with a slim bottom. It’s a casual and easy way to wear them with boots or sneakers as your shoe. Shop the main one featured below (a new outfit on the blog) here. The second one is also still available here in several colors.

Styling a Poncho with Jeans

You can always wear your poncho with jeans too! I have worn the above ones with not only leggings but jeans too. Open ponchos, like my neutral one below, are the perfect pairing for any t-shirt and jeans. whether you pair them with OTK boots, ankle booties, or even sneakers, everything is cute! In the last picture below I did my black and white flannel, black jeans, and my taupe poncho. You don’t have to stick to a white t-shirt, get creative!

Pair a Poncho Over a Dress

Lastly, I love the option of adding a cute poncho over any dress. They are a fun outer layer for winter. A great alternative to a cardigan or jacket. I personally love adding an OTK or tall boot with a dress and poncho.

    You are rocking the ponchos! And I love these earthy tones on you. So gorgeous. I have bins of ponchos and I don’t think I have worn any in quite a while. I need to pull those out and style a few before Spring arrives.

    Such great poncho looks! I love your winter boots tin the first picture. I like ponchos but I stopped buying them because they are just so impractical for my climate. We’re ether hot or cold, not much time in-between.

    I love all of these looks but I actually think my fave is the tan poncho over the floral dress in your mirror selfie – so different and pretty! I will always love a good poncho.
