AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: THE PONCHO

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?

We asked bloggers Shannon from Upbeat Soles and Nifesimi from Skinny Hipster to show us how they style this must-have item below.

Meet Shannon:
 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!

What inspired Shannon’s Look:
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!

What inspired Nifesimi’s Look:
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.

Meet Megan:
Megan is a 20-something year old from Salt Lake City, Utah. She started Styled Avenue to capture all of her favorite styles and trends and has always loved to have fun with style, mix and match and get creative in the way to express herself.

What inspired Megan’s outfit:
I picked items I thought would really fit my personality while dressing for a fun fall day with my family or friends. I have loved my cable knit sweater (I haven’t taken it off) and love how it can be a dressy piece or a piece I can effortlessly wear around the house!

Meet Cat:
Los Angeles’ Cat Wright doesn’t just write about sartorial ways she creates them as well. When she’s not in-and-out of LA showrooms and boutiques or sharing her signature looks on Cat Wright Style, Cat is covering the fashion scene. A regular contributor to online outlets Racked LA, Societe Perrier and E! Online…awards season anyone? She got her journalistic start as Fashion Editor at LA’s Bunker Hill Magazine.  Raised in a small Kentucky town, Cat knew from an early age that Hollywood¹s closets were calling to her, “I was born obsessed. I was five years old and we were driving five hours so I could wear clothes the other kids weren’t. Not much has changed.”

What inspired Cat’s outfit:
I am forever a lover of crop tops but have had so much trouble finding a pair of high-waisted jeans that fit right! Usually they’re either too small or too big in the wrong places or they flatten out the booty. All hail these perfectly stretched pair that have given my favorite style of shirt some winter love and hug the curves just right. I’m a hippie at heart so I added the blue hat to pull out the color of the bright blue denim. For those who feel like it’s too much skin for a daytime stroll, an oversized button-up is the perfect addition (I shopped for mine in the men’s department). #AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Denim X
