Runway to Real Way: The Poncho

At the beginning of every fall season, there’s always one or two trends that I get super excited about after fashion week. This year, that was the poncho. Specifically, plaid and color blocked ponchos. Last year it was the blanket scarf. I’d argue that this year, it’s the blanket poncho. It’s going to be a thing, I’m telling ya. ;)

What I’m Wearing:
Poncho: Colorblock 2-Way Stole via Uniqlo
Tee: Short Sleeve Tunic Top c/o Old Navy
Jeggings: LC Lauren Conrad
Necklace: Emerald Cuff
Booties: Sole Society (similar)

So what sparked this obsession? I think it was one of my favorite outfits from Fashion First Seattle (the runway shot, pictured below). When I saw it come down the runway, I knew I wanted to recreate the look. And while the runway look wasn’t exactly haute couture, for a trend I’m unsure about, I always am looking to get a bargain. (I don’t exactly have height on my side, and this is something I usually only see tall women pulling off!) And that’s where my new favorite shopping tool, Shopswell, came into play.

With Shopswell, I was able to gather multiple ponchos for consideration, track the prices, and ultimately pick the one that was calling to me in a visual way. What I love most are the alerts I receive when an item I’m watching goes on sale. Oh, and the private list feature! I know that will come in handy for the holidays. I’m planning on creating a different board for each person (and pet, can’t forget Rigby!) on my list. I also love that fact that if an item is no longer available, Shopswell lets you know. Unlike Pinterest, there’s no disappointment from clicking a link that takes you nowhere!

    The poncho trend is hands down my favorite this season as well! Every time I pass one in a store I have to tell myself no and slowly back away. They’re so cute and multi-functional.
