Capes and Ponchos

Leave a comment

 

When People hear the words poncho and cape good things may not necessarily come to mind.I never thought I would say this, but I am loving the capes and ponchos of this season! The reason I had doubts about this trend is because a few years back capes were in ,however the shapes of that time were a bit off. The hems were shorter and the patterns were pretty much nonexistent. There is no need to fear for lack of style this season because multiple designers, stores and brands have their take on the trend and there are some ultra chic choices, the hems are longer and there are an array of styles to fit multiple personalities.

Capes and Ponchos are an easy thing to throw on and look fabulous instantly! Now of course You have to make sure it is styled the right way, otherwise you might end up looking like a bad extra from The Three Musketeers.

Casual

If you want your cape or poncho for everyday wear. A nice knit like a  cableknit pattern,cowl-neck,turtleneck or a plaid are great to wear with  leggings or skinny jeans. For shoes a heeled boot is good to lengthen the legs.If you are straight up and down, try a casual short to add shape to your frame, tights and a semi fitted poncho and heels.

General Guidelines

No matter if you are wearing a casual or dressy style it is important to remember a few guidelines to wearing capes and ponchos.

Remember Proportions matter. Since capes and ponchos have a loose fit in general ,make sure what you are wearing on bottom is sleek and fitted otherwise this trend becomes sloppy fast.

Going along with proportions. The length of your bottoms should be ankle length not cropped. There are always exceptions to the rules, but make sure you know how to bend these guidelines so you can look as chic as possible.

 

In Conclusion

In short that is how you wear capes and ponchos. Capes and ponchos are versatile and a easy way to look pulled together quickly. If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

Hey Dolls! My name is Latrenda and I love all things fashion! I love incorporating new trends with the classics and making them my own. I also love cooking, redoing antique furniture, most specifically vanities and much more! I would love it if you followed me so that we can have some fun together. Below you can read about how I came up with the name Ruby Madison! What does the name Ruby Madison mean? Ruby comes from Proverbs 31 where the Bible is describing a woman of Noble Character: 10A capable, intelligent, and [b]virtuous woman--who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls. Proverbs 31:10 The Amplified Bible Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile. Proverbs 31 The Message Bible Madison comes from Madison Avenue in Manhattan, New York. Madison Avenue is known as the “fashionable road” where the most well known fashion designers, hair salons etc. are located. Therefore, we come to the name Ruby Madison which stands for a fashionable woman of noble character and strength that looks good while navigating in her everyday life.© Whether she stays at home with her children or works outside the home or both; a Ruby Madison Woman can handle it all and does it all with style.
