How to Wear Capes and Ponchos!


Stripe Poncho

Trust us, these capes, ponchos and wraps are all over the mainstream fashion and everyone seems to be loving them! These are great trends and extremely fashionable too, only if you know how to pair them! Here are a few ideas to get you started…

While it’s been established that capes are a great fashion accessory, it’s unfortunate that they are hard to style! And by that, we don’t mean that they are like eyelet tops that need extra care while styling; capes and ponchos are hard to style, ‘cos they never seem to go well with handbags! If you wear your handbag over your shoulder then the fabric of the poncho tend to get crumpled under the weight and you end up looking unfashionable; but if you wear it under your cape, you risk being mistaken for a pregnant lady! We have two options that might help you in this predicament!

  1. Wear your modern geometrically styled poncho but use a statement-making box clutch and carry all the items you need in your hand! Yes, it can be a bit uncomfortable, but hey, there’s no gain without a little pain!
  2. Or, you could use a handbag with short handles and just carry them around slung over your forearm (Like Miranda Kerr does, all the time)! But be sure to pick a poncho in bright colors that can take the attention away from your bag!
  3. You can grab a clutch and carry in your hands! But for this look, you might have to partly tuck in your poncho ant tap into that preppy look!
