Is it a Cape or a Poncho?
Fall Trends…(or a classic look as it turns out)!
Have you guys tried the cape/poncho trend? What do you think? Let me know, comment below!! The thing I love about this poncho is that it’s basically a giant blanket and it’s acceptable to wear in public…. it looks classy and elegant and you never know what could be hiding underneath! jkjk It’s also great for those freezing cold offices like mine can be some days! It’s nice for a cool evening out or to wear for errands or the farmers market during the day. To change up the look you can wear it with sneakers and jeans or yoga pants during the day and then put on heels/or booties and belt it for a classy sexier evening look.
Here’s more about the two:
You know you’re wearing a cape if its max length hits around your hip and or it has a hood. A hood is dead giveaway of a cape, but not a requirement (when cape, think Red Riding Hood or the wicked witch in sleeping beauty—is that Maleficent!? I’m so not up on that)!!
The origination of the cape was Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries (dang that’s a LONG trend)!!
A poncho is rectangular in shape and made of wool with a hole cut in it for the head.
The origination of the poncho was in cultures of South and Central America and according to Wikipedia date back as far as, Pre-Inca Culture around 500 B.C. HOLY MOLY! Ponchos can also come with pom-poms and fringe!
