Freezing + Nordstrom Giveaway.

If Zara and Obi-Wan Kenobi had a baby, it would be this poncho.

I had been wanting to add a poncho to my closet since the beginning of the season; they seemed so cozy and when executed appropriately, could be really chic. We’ve been wearing huge blanket scarves for a few winters now, and I think those over-sized bad boys paved the way for the return of the poncho.

This Zara poncho had me at the gray and camel combo, but I was totally sold when I realized the lettering down the side read: “FREEZING.” Yes, good. Especially considering it’s not supposed to be above the 32° mark for at least another week here in Kansas City. (Argh, winter.)

Kept the neutral theme throughout: black skinny jeans (seriously, I live in Madewell denim), a gray cashmere blend sweater (on super sale right now in a ton of colors), and black cut-out stompers.

Tips when shopping for a poncho:

  • Look for something that drapes over the shoulders rather than has a hole for you head to poke through. The former is more modern + allows the option to belt the poncho if you feel it’s overwhelming your frame.
  • Neutral colors (black, winter white, tan, gray, navy, olive green, etc.) are your best color palette bets, especially for novice poncho-wearers.
  • Say yes to: patterns and fringe. Both work.
  • If you’re short/petite, try wearing a poncho with tall heeled boots or pumps so your legs don’t get lost.
