How To Wear a Poncho: 10 Ways To Pull Off The Poncho Look

Pulling off a poncho can be tricky. The poncho's wide shape needs to be balanced out by the right styling. Here are 10 styling tips on what to wear with your poncho to stay warm and stylish this fall/winter season.

Poncho Over Sweater

As far as the top is concerned, if your poncho requires to wear something underneath it, the most common option is to wear it over a long sleeve t-shirt or sweater.

Poncho Over Collared Shirt

Wearing a poncho over a collared shirt creates a smarter, office-approved look.

Poncho With Skinnies

As for the bottom, the easiest way to style a poncho is to wear it with skinny jeans or slim trousers. Because a poncho is rather billowy itself, wearing something fit on your bottom will balance your outfit's volume and won't make you look like a balloon.

Poncho With Ripped Jeans

To create a casual, off-duty look, opt for distressed denim.

Poncho With Leather Skinnies

For a more contemporary feel, modernize your look by pairing the poncho with leather skinnies.

Poncho With Boyfriend Jeans

A trickier look to pull off would be pairing your poncho with boyfriend jeans. If you're not very tall though, you risk ending up looking disproportionate. Wearing heels will help elevate your style.

Poncho With Flares

For a 70s-inspired look, team your poncho with flare jeans or trousers.

Poncho With Over-The-Knee Boots

Pairing a poncho with over-the-knee boots will give your outfit a sexy, modern vibe. Show off some leg and wear it with shorts or even as a dress with thigh-high boots in suede.

Otherwise, choose skinny jeans or leggings for the bottom.

Poncho With Leggings

If your poncho is long enough and hits below hip, you can wear it with leggings and ankle boots or, for a cozier feel, knee high socks and riding boots.

Poncho With Waist Belt

If you don't like the poncho's oversized shape and want to accentuate your waist, simply cinch the poncho at the waist with a belt.
