When we say that our Patterned Sweater Poncho is the perfect piece to layer over every fall to winter look, we mean it. Between it’s cozy wide ribbed cowl neck, earth tone hues and tonal pattern, what’s not to love?
I am a born and raised Florida girl that is a medical professional by day, fashion blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we are parents to a crazy Aussie mix and kitty. I created Upbeat Soles as a way to express my fashion juices that are held in by wearing scrubs most of the days. I also believe that fashion doesn’t need to cost an arm and leg and that you can look fabulous on any budget!

During Fall everyone wants to be comfy, but yet still stylish and this amazing poncho is just that! I have been loving that the poncho has made a comeback because is doesn’t get much cozier! I really wanted to play up the Earth tones of the poncho, so I paired it with these gorgeous taupe, suede boots and broke up the colors with a dark wash AEO skinny jean. Simple, cozy, but yet still chic!

One of the items I love wearing during cold seasons are ponchos. They work well on all body types and really keeps me warm. I took a break from heels and dressed the poncho down by wearing a denim on denim look with moccasins.

What Inspired Jen’s Look:
When it feels like 10°F outside, you better believe I’ll be bundled up from head to toe. To me, comfort is key, but looking put-together comes in a close second. I love the coziness of a thick, knit sweater with a simple pair of leggings. Chunky-heeled booties keep the outfit looking refined while a pom beanie adds a little bit of holiday cheer.

What inspired Bethany’s Look:
I’m a huge fan of plaid and if you raid my wardrobe you will find many a plaid scarf, but a limited selection of other plaid clothing items. This is because I generally like a hint of the pattern in an outfit but find it a little bold to wear as a whole garment. When I saw this sweater at Aerie I knew it was the perfect way to transition plaid into other aspects of my closet. The subtle nature of the pattern means that it’s not overbearing and made it easy to style. I kept the rest of my outfit simple with navy denim skinny jeans (which highlight the navy stripe in the sweater) and a neutral bag and booties. The neutral accessories ensure that the sweater is the focal point of the outfit. I love this sweater for fall going into winter. It’s definitely the prettiest, coziest piece I’ve bought to date this season!

What inspired Jessica’s Look:
Going home to PA for the holidays means more casual looks than I usually wear in NYC – but I still like to throw in a few signature touches. I started with this over-sized sweater – it’s a great basic and the graphic ‘Oui’ adds a bit of French fun. I can never resist a little print mixing so I grabbed my favorite plaid blanket scarf and leopard booties, then topped it off with a pop of color from this bright tote. Distressed denim and ivory mittens kept me warm and cozy for an afternoon outdoors.. dreaming of my next trip to Paris!
