Which do you like the most, ponchos or capes? A cape is a sleeveless long outer garment that covers only the back half, whilst ponchos are long piece outerwear pieces that are loose-fitted and cover your torso from the back to the front side. In today’s fashion world, these two outer garments are made of exclusive materials and completed in luxe details. Personally, I think these two are impractical (wearing a bag can be a challenge) toppers that look quite medieval to me, but it’s only my personal opinion.
The following gray-white fringed cape looks boho inspired and easy to style. Try it on with black turtleneck, blue skinnies tucked in gray suede over-the-knee boots completed with gray leather handbag.
If you are new to capes and ponchos, then this street style compilation can be quite helpful for you. I see lots of style bloggers who changed their classic coats for cozy capes and ponchos. The key to make these two pieces look awesome on you is to make sure your silhouette is well proportionated and ideally incorporated into your everyday wardrobe. Everyone can wear these outerwear pieces. Scroll down to see my favorite ideas on how to wear these two designs in real life.
