I have struck outfit gold. I was really feeling this look when I wore it to class last week. I styled my favorite new piece from the Who What Wear collection at Target: the fringe poncho. This poncho is perfect for a time like this where a third piece can really elevate your look—especially for holiday parties. Come to think of it, I would just switch out the T-shirt for a nice blouse and wear this to a party this holiday season. But we're going to keep it (semi) casual today.
Funny enough, I actually wore this poncho inside out all day and didn't realize until I was looking at the photos. Luckily you can't tell. Underneath my poncho I wore a simple white T-shirt from Divided at H&M. I tucked in the front half to add some polish to the look.
My (very fuzzy) trousers are from Topshop. The only downside to wearing this poncho is that its fuzz clings to everything, but it can easily be removed with a lint roller. Another great pant option would be Who What Wear's Cropped Flare. Black pants of any kind are a great basic that can be used for many different occasions, so find a style you love and buy 10 pairs.
I wore my favorite Dolce Vita booties to add a pop of color to my very monochromatic look. While these aren't available anymore, Steve Madden has come out with a similar pair that comes in even more colors. I've been eyeing the navy blue velvet pair. They would be perfect for the holiday season. Who What Wear has also recently release shoes at Target, and they have a burgundy bootie that's also a great (and super affordable) option. I can't wait to come home and pick up some of their shoes and clothes from the latest line.
Stay tuned for yet ANOTHER post tomorrow!
