See…this is exactly why I never get rid of my old stuff! These two ponchos have been hanging in my closet since the 7th grade! And after holding onto them for all these years, my old knit cover-ups from the GAP came in handy when styling my new printed cords from Free People.
The ivory poncho balances out these bold floral-print bottoms multiple ways in this outfit. The neutral color of the cover-up coordinates with the colorful cords, while still allowing them to be the focal point of the outfit. The knit’s sleek silhouette is oversized in shape allowing this piece to be comfy & chic, while the skinny leg of the cord bottoms shows that you still have a body underneath all that fabric.
Here, I paired my light pink poncho with my plaid corduroy pants. Even though there is none of the pastel within the pants, because it is a lighter shade of the base color, it still works to wear it with the bottoms…at least I think. :) What do you think?
Fashion acts like a revolving door – eventually everything comes back in style. You just never know, something you wore years ago could be the next “in” thing tomorrow! Think about it…all of those flannel shirts from the 90’s grunge era, or how about those boho chic styles you wore back in the 70’s when you used to be a hippie? Don’t you wish you still had them to wear now?
Have you ever gotten rid of something that you later regretted? If so, were you able to find a replacement?…and was it as good as the original?
As far as I’m concerned, classic pieces like this can be kept in your closet forever – as long as it doesn’t show signs of damage the wardrobe wear-with-all is welcome whenever!
