Roundup :: The Summer Poncho

It may seem a bit ridiculous to some to be planning my summer wardrobe already, but lately I’ve been on a major wardrobe overhaul. Tweaking and refining my style to suit life as it is now… not life as it was 4 years ago. My only problem is that I live in a city that’s not LA. Because everything I want screams 72 and sunny.

My most recent obsession? The summer poncho.

I am such a west coast girl at heart, but Seattle style is very different from our friends down south. For weather reasons amongst others. Still – I’m determined to make it work. Something a bit more like this perhaps?

I actually love the contrast between the summery, striped poncho and the leather skirt. I’m thinking I can do the same with my leather leggings, yes?

This simple outfit, however, is right up my everyday alley. And yes that top is sold out, so don’t even bother trying to hunt it down (I already did.) 

But if you’re interested in jumping on the poncho bandwagon with me…

1. ulla johnson ‘cusco’ poncho // 2. koza ‘maria’ poncho // 3. dorian striped poncho // 4. lemlem stripe top for jcrew // 5. hackwith ‘finn’ top // 6. topshop fringed top

Try these babes on for size. And if you like something a bit more tunic-inspired, go for the stripes in a simple top that evokes the same feel. It might be a bit more flattering, depending on your body type.

Here are a few more selections to fit your personal style (and budget!)
