How to wear a plaid poncho

Every once in awhile, I like to step out of my comfort zone and get something different. This plaid poncho is one of those items. Actually, I kind of blame Deena at Shoes to Shiraz for wanting one because she is always rocking them. So here is how to wear a plaid poncho, Puppies & Pretties style.

Since this poncho is a statement on its own between the plaid print, oversize fit and cowl neck, I went simple for everything else. These flare jeans give it a bit of a retro look. Then a simple tote (how have I lived so long without one of these Tory Burch beauties?!?) completes the outfit. I can see wearing this poncho with skinny jeans and riding boots too. This might be in the running for a Christmas outfit too, but that would have to be with leggings. Because this girl doesn’t have time for non-stretchy pants on a wonderful food day like Christmas!

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a total dress/skirt kind of girl. But I’m kind of stumped on how to wear  a plaid poncho with a skirt or dress. Maybe with a body con dress and riding boots? It seems that you need a bit of a trim fit on the bottom to help balance out the oversize fit of the poncho. But I might have to do some experimentation with some of my skirts or even dresses.

Are you wearing ponchos this winter season? I’d love to hear how you are styling them!

    Love the poncho look on you. I’ve been wanting one for some time and I really like the bottom left corner option because it almost looks like a loose tunic that I could wear to the office and be stylish/professional at the same time. I also really like the bottom right.

    You know I am poncho crazy! I have at least a dozen in my closet but now I think I need this one too, I absolutely love the colors and the design! You look cozy and adorable!

    Cute! I love ponchos, I’m so happy they’re back in style. My mom crocheted me one as a kid (I still have it) and I love wearing it around the house or when I’m camping.

    It looks great on you! I had to wear ponchos when had a broken arm. I felt totally self conscious at first, but I they kept me warm. I definitely didn’t look as good as you wearing it.

    I’m kind of in love with this poncho. Love the colors, the cowl neck, everything. You could wear it with a pencil skirt and it would be adorable!

    Such a pretty poncho. I love the warm camel color in yours. I bought one online from Kohl’s but I am dangerous in it. I roll my rolling office chair all over it and knock things off the counters with the “arms” or “tails”. Need a block of instruction on how to wear a poncho like a lady.
