When Burberry launched what can only be called a poncho in their F/W14 collection the trend for oversized scarves, blanket coats and shawls took off in a major way.
Seen on the likes of Cara Delevingne, Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a suppressed scarf is the perfect look for lazy Sundays and will easily take you into Spring allowing you to wear a lightweight jacket rather than your big wintery coat. See how we style it below.
Stay faithful to the classics and give a fringed black version a try. Styled with a crisp white shirt and leather trousers this scarf gives the perfect touch of boho cool to an otherwise simple look.
Push your sartorial boundaries and splash that student loan out on a patterned poncho like this grey number. It’s best to stick to muted colour palettes and simple patterns otherwise you could end up looking a little like you’re channeling Ugly Betty (circa the pilot episode!) Team it with a classic fedora and some ripped skinnies and you’re sure to impress all your mates.
An oversized scarf is a great way to jazz up a simple outfit like this and it also looks stylish and cosy at the same time. Pair it with some buckle detail ankle boots and a carryall tote for a look that’s perfect for those early morning lectures.
As always, all of the looks are available to purchase on STYLIGHT.
