Tired of poncho looks yet? I’m not. I LOVE them. Ponchos are more forgiving than vests (ahem, not sleeveless), and less restrictive than capes (can’t move your arms). They make excellent layering pieces over your favorite basics like jeans and leather leggings, but also look amazing belted over a dress for a more elegant ensemble.

I wore this outfit the day I went on a bit of a museum tour through London a couple weeks back! I knew I wanted to be comfortable since I would be standing all day, but also wanted to look chic and put together. Pairing this Karen Millen poncho (similar US option here) with my softest Vince leggings and a clean white shirt was the way to go. Adding a pair of sleek oxfords helped tie the whole look together in a smart, polished way. I’ll be taking this poncho with me on my travels next week – it’s not big, it lays flat and it doesn’t wrinkle. Can’t beat a travel basic like that!

I’m actually heading to the Sir John Soane museum this afternoon, and will likely wear some variation of this look again today!
