…I say ruana. Poncho, wrap, ruana, cape…let’s call the whole thing fabulous.
Actually I’ve found that ponchos tend to divide the masses; people either love them or hate them. I’m in the love camp. I spotted this plaid poncho back in the spring when I attended a party/preview at the Eileen Fisher LA showroom, and knew I’d be looking for it come fall. This is one of those pieces you can throw on for Instant Outfit. Yes, it’s dramatic, but that’s the point.
Toss one end over your shoulder if it gets chilly.
All of the other clothes in this outfit are from last year (or older), a testament to good basics. I’m enjoying the current trend of white for fall, and have been wearing my white jeans more often.
I’ve received a few comments recently requesting some lower-priced versions of items I’ve shown or am wearing. I always try to include similar items in a range of prices in the widgets at the bottom of the post. If you’re looking for reasonably priced and well-made basics, with an eye toward ethical manufacturing and transparency, do check out Everlane. They offer a similarly cut tank (cotton rather than linen) for $25. I recently purchased this cotton tee ($28) and am quite pleased with it.
Do you have a poncho/wrap/ruana/cape in your wardrobe? How do you like to style it?
