Three Ways To Wear A Poncho

Today I’m showing three ways to wear a poncho.

Ponchos are a popular choice this time of year but often, I lack inspiration on different ways to wear them. That is the reason I put together this post.

I was gifted a new red cashmere poncho that I’m wearing in the photos, and had been playing around with different ways to style it. These three below were my favourite looks.

Look 1

Here I am wearing the poncho wrap just simply draped over my black sweater. You could also add a belt to give some shape to the waistline.

Look 2

In this look I am wearing the poncho wrap draped over one shoulder. I think this looks a lot more formal than look 1 above, and would work well in smarter daytime looks and also evening wear.

Look 3

My third look is perfect for evening wear and festive outfits. I have tied the poncho in a knot at the front to give the illusion of a cape.

    Beautiful red poncho!!!

    • Jacquard Flower

      Thanks Marta x

    I rarely wear my poncho, it is either too hot or too cold for them in my experience. Maybe with really warm jumpers underneath?

      Yes it depends on the weather but I would definitely wear it with a thicker jumper or even over a jacket. x

      • Linda Libra Loca

        My jacket is too thick to wear anything on top, I wouldn’t be able to walk through the door anymore.

        • Jacquard Flower

          It would depend on the thickness of your jacket and poncho. I would tend to layer over a thin jacket so it’s not so bulky but the layer of the poncho adds warmth. Have a great day Anne.

    I love how versitile this is, I want a chunky poncho to wrap up warm in. – Amy x

  • Cynical Duchess

    That red, is so romantic. You look at it, and you just know that it has something to say. I also have that problem with ponchos, I never know how to wear them, and I also never know when it is appropriate to wear them. Its a dilemma that I will have to fix at some point. But meanwhile, I am going to compliment your red poncho once again– the red literally makes you glow.

  • Katya Bychkova | StyleSprinter

    What a stunning poncho sweater, Gemma! This shade of red really works for you!

  • Wildfire Charm

    I love the tied up poncho look! It’s so cute. x

  • Mikéla Davelyn
