cynthia steffe a/w '11
Not that it ever got all that hot here, but the temperature seems to be on a downward trend. Now all I can think about are ponchos, ponchos, ponchos! I never imagined I'd be a poncho kind of girl but there were some from the a/w '11 collections that caught my eye and even a few custom made ones. Being on a strict budget with no extra cash on hand to indulge in this craze of mine, I'm going to take a look at some fabric I have on hand and see if I can DIY one. If it works out well, I'll post it on here. If it totally bombs....well, we'll just pretend I never mentioned a thing about it. ;D
I've done some digging and it seems like the most important thing to keep in mind when styling a poncho is proportions. Leggings and skinny jeans seem to be the best options to keep us from looking like we're drowning in fabric. I've considered belting it as well. Are any of you into poncho's for this colder weather? If you are, what are some of your favorite ways to wear them?
