I love wearing black. It can be a copout, but it can also be very flattering, and in the case of an all-black outfit, downright stunning if it’s done right. I’m not sure this is done right, but it’s my meager attempt! Haha. Actually, I really love how this outfit turned out.
I’ve had this poncho for months. I bought it back in August on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. As a result, it is no longer available, but I’ll link to some other options below. I honestly don’t know why I waited so long to wear it. The fabric is high quality, and it has a fabulous drape to it. Because it is black with grey trim, I was unsure how to style it. I know I could wear it with anything from jewel tones to pastels, but I feel safest wearing it with black. In the end, the “safe” choice became a striking outfit.
I actually wore the poncho to lunch with a friend with a grey leopard-print tee underneath. Here’s a selfie I took that day.
It worked, but for some reason, I really like it best with the black.
I accessorized with silver. My Silpada Half Moon Earrings always make a great statement, and I added my Stella & Dot Rebel Ring for another bold piece.
