Trend To Try: Ponchos + Capes

Recently we did a post on fashionable and classic transitional fall coats.  A big trend this season, and one we have fully embraced the past few years, is the flirty, fun, and super-comfortable poncho and its cousin the cape.  Ponchos and capes are typically lighter in weight than jackets and can easily be worn both indoors and out.  Super versatile, you can easily layer sweaters underneath for chillier days.  Plus, when can something so ridiculously comfy and cozy add instant drama to your outfit without any effort? They are simple to style and once in your wardrobe, you will reach for these chic toppers again and again!

Historically, ponchos are known to be more casual than capes.  This heathered taupe and cream poncho with its textured weave and flirty fringe is the perfect companion to take when heading to the Del Ray Farmers market, football game, or simply to view the beautiful fall foliage!

The details in this gorgeous blush pink cashmere sweater are amazing.  The rustic leather buckles on the cowl neck is reminiscent of the Wild West, and you can button the sides together to make a poncho’s version of sleeves.  This can easily be worn with denim or, for a more dramatic look, wear white jeans!
