Poncho styled capes hit the streets in the fall of 2015. These trendy tartans were desired by all because they provided the same warmth as your mid weight coat but were a whole lot easier to put on and take off. Plus blanket capes and ponchos were cozy and comfortable while being a fabulous fashion look.
The tartan poncho is the perfect style to wear when it is cold outdoors.
When shopping for a poncho you will find a variety of styles and fabrics, from acrylic to cashmere and everything in-between. The acrylic and wool blends are good for climates that are not bitter cold, and the wool and cashmere are for colder climates provided you wear a sweater underneath.
Trendy TartansKnow that the tartan ponchos are the hottest accessory for winter season and this blue and white Vivienne Westwood tartan is one of my favorites. I wear denim nearly every day, and the style of this poncho makes it a must have.
Speaking of Must HavesSo to convince my minimalist husband I had to create a need for my must have poncho. I explained that I needed something light weight to walk the dogs and that the poncho would be all I would need while driving or riding in the car. The plaid colors would coordinate with many of my outfits and the tartan was a classic style.
This particular poncho is open in the front which means it is like an oversize scarf, if you feel warm you can push it off to the one side, or you can drape around your shoulders and still look fabulous.
Seeing is believing and convincing in my case. I designed this fashion set to show my husband why this poncho was a must have. Here is a western outfit that features a Vivienne Westwood acrylic tartan poncho cape that is shown with a Rick Owens Crater peal color mohair knit sweater, classic boot cut denim jeans. This outfit is accessorized with denim bag and Cordovan Western Mustang Custom Belt and boots.
