An easy way to take your jeans from average to awesome is to throw on a cozy poncho. Fall ponchos make perfect toppers when the weather is up and down, and it feels too warm for a coat.
From rustic blanket ponchos trimmed in fringe, to elegant, knit ponchos with clean, modern lines, ponchos add a touch of drama to any casual jeans outfit. Here’s a look at 3 fall ponchos in stores right now and how to style them in a casual, modern way.
Style Black Jeans with a Camel Hooded Poncho
Here’s a poncho that adds a lot of pizzazz to a pair of basic black jeans. I am in love with the big flowy feel of this classy, wool camel poncho that would be a dream to wear. The graceful shawl collar gives it a very elegant look, and the beautiful hood makes me think that if this poncho was in red, it is exactly what I can imagine Little Red Riding Hood Wearing. In other words, it’s a classic!
A cream bag and booties pick up on the cream turtleneck and pull it all together.
Style White Jeans with a Teal Fringe Poncho
If you are looking for a way to transition your summer wardrobe into fall, then this poncho is the solution. Wear your warm-weather whites head to toe with this gorgeous, reversible fringe poncho. Whether you wear it navy side out with the teal lapels showing or teal side out with the navy lapels front and center, this is a fresh and exciting look. A fall bag in navy balances out all that white.
Style Dark Wash Jeans with a Burgundy Knit Poncho
Sometimes a poncho is more like a sweater, like this funnel neck knit poncho that slips on over your head like a hoodie. No need to layer under this. You can wear it as is if you like with blue jeans and cute booties. The drawstring neckline and patch pockets give this poncho a sporty, casual feel.
The nice thing about this particular poncho is that some of us at a certain age prefer a little neck coverage to downplay a saggy neck. A turtleneck can be too severe. This is a lovely neckline to solve that problem.
As for the color, I think this rich wine shade is an ideal match with the dark denim. It’s very classy, and the gold bag I’ve thrown in there really pops and makes this outfit!
These 3 poncho looks with jeans are minimum effort, maximum style. Don’t be left out. Have you bought a poncho this fall? Send me a photo. I would love to see you in it.
