And welcome to a new outfit post. Today, I will show you one of my favorite outfits for this fall. The accent piece is a grey hooded poncho from Diesel. Why did I dedicate an entire post to ponchos? Well, it should be obvious. They do look fashionable, they are very comfy and ward off the wind. (Besides you can hide some extra pounds you gained during your trip to lovely Rome Italy.) It seems like also the Native American people of the Andes, which wore the poncho since pre-Hispanic times new of the benefits of the poncho. Originally it was a piece of cloth with a slit in the middle, through which the wearer put his head. They were often very colorful and displaying traditional symbols of a tribe.
Today ponchos come in every shape and variation – with sleeves, with a hoodie, with shags etc.
I combined my poncho with some leather leggings from Topshop and some boots from Moschino. Further, I chose an Etro bag to go with this outfit because of the ethno-print to make a reference to the Native American origins of the poncho.
What do you wear with your poncho? Do you like the simple one-colored poncho or a more colorful version? I am looking forward to hear your opinion.
