I couldn’t wait to create this color-blocking combination for Fall. As soon as this poncho came into the store (Anthropologie) I knew it had to be part of my collection…and I knew exactly what I was going to pair it with. First & foremost, I love the color of the chunky cable knit. The vibrant kiwi illuminates off of the pastel pink skinny jeans it is paired with. The thin leg denim off-sets the thicker texture and shape of the poncho – creating a balance in the outfit between the top and bottom.
I am also going to pair the poncho with some ivory silk shorts. I think the delicate lace peeking out from underneath the heavy winter woven will be an unexpected element.
Too bad the unseasonably warm October weather hasn’t allowed me to wear either of these outfits yet – but, I guess I shouldn’t be complaining about the sunshine so close to the first snow fall.
