Layer Up!

What used to spring to mind when I heard the word Poncho!

At the moment here in Ireland we are experiencing a bit of a late summer.The morning could start off quiet chilly and yet it could turn really warm by lunchtime. A great piece to have on standby in your closet this season is the humble poncho.They are great for layering and can be worn over dresses or slim fitting trousers alike. You can also accessorize them with wide belts for a more stylish look.Here are some looks that are inspiring me at the minute...

striped alpaca-blend Sonia Rykiel
Tomas Maier at net-a-porter
And  two from my high street favourites which are also lovely...
purple mohair  Zara
Cowl neck H&M
             The styling may have changed a little since it was first worn but they still remain as versatile and cosy as ever. A great addition to any fall closet!

  6. Is the moustache optional for this look?! I always get a bit tangled up when I've worn a poncho, I can't seem to find my arms under the swathes of fabric :) x
