A couple months ago I decided I needed a casual, neutral-hued wrap of some sort to fill a hole in my wardrobe. Something that could be dressed up a little to go out, or worn as a blanket-like accessory for cool fall nights around a fire pit. Nothing caught my eye until I stumbled upon this fringed poncho, at Forever 21 of all places. It comes in four different colors, though I opted for the camel since it’s the perfect shade for fall. There are definitely some beautiful cashmere wraps out there that may be worth a larger investment, but at under $20, purchasing this one was a no-brainer.
A poncho can be a difficult thing to wear without looking like you just fell out of bed, but I think with the right styling they look so chic. I love the look of a simple turtleneck underneath, and by keeping the rest of your layers slim-fitted, you avoid looking too bulky. If you’re on the fence about the style, this inexpensive option is a great way to test it out. I’ve also linked some similar styles at various price points below.
