Fashion: Reversible Two Sided Poncho

Reversible two sided poncho

Before the weather gets too sunny and warm, I shall better share my two-sided poncho outfit with you, which was actually shot a few weeks ago.

I've only found some time to write about this OOTD (outfit of the day) now, as time these days has become a rarity. However, as spring slowly but surely arrives, it's safe to say that a poncho can be worn in this transitional period just as well as we would do so in autumn.

This two-sided poncho had been on my watchlist for a while, but it retailed originally at £75, which - to be honest - I would never pay for a poncho. Luckily, ASOS announced a sale just around Christmas and at less than half price, it took me two clicks and a few days later to call it my own.

Made of 66% wool and the rest the usual viscose and polyamide mix, the poncho is slightly heavy but has a lovely texture and definitely keeps you warm. It has two different patterns: the outer side is darker and less colourful, whereas the inner side has warm red and mustard yellow colourways. For the pictures I decided to go with the darker version as the more colourful side would have been too dominant for the rest of the outfit.

I'm wearing this statement poncho over a super cosy turtleneck top from Oasis which has a lovely ruffled detail at the front and a leather skirt from my all-time favourite store Stradivarius. Did I mention that Stradivarius will be opening a second branch in London later in the year? It will be on Oxford Street just opposite Debenhams/John Lewis, which means after work I can just have a little look and won't have to go to Westfields in Stratford anymore - eeeek, dangerous game! 

The uncomplicated belt keeps the poncho in place and the golden pendant necklace from Accessorize applies a touch of Boho. The wool fedora is from Primark which I bought last summer for £8 and picks up the fabric from the poncho. Leather skirt and boots further pick up the same tan colour and work well with the rest of the colours in this outfit.

Here Is What I'm wearing:

Reversible Two-Sided Poncho: Kiboots via ASOS (current sale, £38)
Turtleneck: Oasis (current sale £8)
Gold Pendant Necklace: Accessorize (bought AW14, £8)
Leather Skirt: Stradivarius (current sale £15)
Belt: Stradivarius (current season, £9) 
Watch: Hippie Chica* (current season, £18)
Boots: Jonesbootmaker (current sale £50)
Fedora: Primark (SS15, £8)

Casual, chic, uncomplicated - it combines everything that I need in an outfit. This poncho is a true statement piece and the centre of the outfit, so I tried to keep the rest of the style rather subtle. Its pattern reminds me very much of Southamerican cultures and I tried to give the outfit a little boho twist. Do you think the wool poncho works well with the leather skirt? Oh and just in case you wondered why my hair looks amazing for a change, I'm using a Brazilian keratin hair oil from Natural Worlds, which makes such a big difference!

Thank you so much for checking out today's post. Do you prefer jackets and coats for spring or do you get your autumn poncho out? What did you get in this year's sales? If you love this look I have another transitional boho autumn style for you on StyleLingua.

Till next time,
