What to wear on those cool summer evenings, the British edition

plaid

British summer can be a bit moody

It may be hot one day and rainy and chilly the next. Or a warm day may be be followed by a cool evening. This means that some sort of a cover-up is necessary. Preferably something light and easy to put on when the temperature drops.

A wool poncho is a good alternative for a jacket, easy to throw over both a casual or a more formal outfit. Trust me, I know: I have this poncho in white, red (worn here with stripes, and a lace skirt, and stripes again) and blue (worn here with a plaid shirt and with a Breton top), and couldn't resist getting it in purple plaid.

I thought the poncho would look great with my favourite Custo Barcelona top and olive trousers. A casual look with a bit of flair, just what an evening walk in the neighbourhood calls for.

  1. A poncho is so much more stylish than a jacket. You always pick the right things to wear.

    1. Tuanks, Natalia. I love ponchos, too. Well, I have 5 of these ponchos, in different colours... I just find this type of a poncho very useful because you can wear it over anything.
