I love a poncho, matter a fact I REALLY love a poncho in the summer. Especially if it is thin, and flowy with fun bright color. Bright flowy ponchos are great to add with white pants, capris, or shorts for a simple but dramatic summer look. You will see me pulling out my arsenal of ponchos, ruanas, and kimonos all summer long because they are fun. I like fun clothes. Let’s be honest, it is also a great way to hide “a little too much” of summer fun but still look FABULOUS. Today I am going to show you my Aqua Tie Dye Poncho.
Aqua Tie Dye Poncho
This poncho I got from Chico’s last year at near the end of summer on sale. Matter fact, I went on a poncho buying spree and never looked back. But what I found was that these were the tops I went for the most when I needed to look casual but special. Casual poolside dinner, dinner out with friends, dinner out at the beach, girls shopping day, my poncho collection sees it all. Now, it is important to note that I have to wear a camisole or tank top with almost all of my ponchos. The tank top I wore with this one is the Chico’s Microfiber Contemporary Tank Top in Optic White. I have a collection of these tank tops in many colors that I wear all year around.
Easy Breezy Summer Look With Light Flowy Poncho
The material in this poncho is thin and polyester. I love the split sleeves to give extra drama and too keep the breeze blowing. I styled this top with this fun Cool Seed Bead Illusion Necklace from Chico’s. Chico’s is marking down many of there summer jewelry pieces so make sure you check the sale and final sale section. Adding a multi-strand necklace helps bring attention up and give this outfit a finished look. For earrings, I pulled out my simple silver hoops. For sunglasses, I am wearing my Maui Jim Starfish Polarized Lens in Bronze. This is a part of Maui Jim’s fashion sunglasses collection which features thicker frames but still the FABULOUS polarized lens Maui Jim is famous for.
Aqua Tie Dye Poncho With White Capri Pants For Summer Casual Look
White pants are HOT this year. Fashion gurus are really trying to break the conceived notion that you can only wear white between Memorial Day and Labor Day. I live in the South and we broke that rule long ago. Plus, being over 50 give me the freedom to say “I really don’t care for the rules, I wear what I want when I want”. But, hey, it is summer and white rules the day. For my body type white is hard to wear unless you pair it with a bright color top. You can find white capris, shorts, pants, and jeans everywhere right now. These are a jean material with LOTS of spandex- YEAH!!! They are from the Marilyn Straight Crop Cuff Capris from NYDJ. I am considering removing releasing the cuff to give me more of an ankle jean, but I love the color and the fit. NYDJ jeans come in all sizes including curvy, and petite. Finally, as many of you know, I am a HUGE fan of the FitFlop for summer. A couple of years back I got plantar fasciitis and the only shoes I could wear were FitFlops. They are not cheap but truly saved my feet. I can usually find great prices on FitFlops at Nordstrom Rack.
