I love the drama of a cape, but I don’t always want something so structured and formal, especially on weekends.
That’s why I’ve fallen in love with blanket ponchos. Here’s a look at one I’ve been wearing lately, and some other similar blanket ponchos that will wrap you up in style.
If you have never worn a blanket poncho, you are in for a treat. They’re warm and cozy like a real blanket but feel much lighter and comfy than a coat. They have a kind of Southwest or Mexican inspired vibe that reminds you of the sun, the sand and desert landscapes.
Just throw one on with a pair of jeans and a top and you’re ready for a beautiful fall walk or just a bit of shopping. See how soft mine looks and you can beat those stunning sunset colors.
I’ve paired my blanket poncho with a dusty rose lace-up sweatshirt that goes perfectly with the laid-back weekend vibe. Booties look super cute with a wrap like this, (suede works well with the rustic look and feel), and a bit of a heel always helps to make your poncho flow as you walk.
The nice thing about a blanket poncho is that it’s a great layering piece. If things heat up, just pull it off and drape it over your bag, or roll it up and tuck it away. Blanket ponchos are generally pretty light and they’re great for traveling, especially when you are on a plane! It’s your blanket away from home!
Here’s my blanket poncho in all its glory. Have you ever worn a blanket poncho?
