Calling all prepsters, meet your new go-to layering piece. If you personally believe that pearls pair perfectly with everything and nautical themes work just about everywhere, then you too can rock the poncho trend. Elan has crafted a flawless sweater poncho that can showcase your classy style when layered over a plaid button up or long sleeve striped shirt. Complete your preppy look with riding boots and, of course, your faithful pearls.
If your style is more casual and reserved, don’t rule out this trend. Ponchos are still totally appropriate for those of you who feel more comfortable sticking to the basics.
