Today is the last day of August and while it is not officially the last day of summer it is sure starting to feel that way. One trend that I anticipate will be popular this season is the poncho. It's back and better than ever offered in many rich colours and luxurious fabrics. The ponchos that are out this season have a more cape feeling to them and provide an extra layer for the cool mornings while being easy to store away once it warms up. They are lighter in weight and are able to fit closer to the body. The trick to styling this piece during the transitional weather is to combine your fall purchases with your favorite summer items. White was a huge trend this summer and I plan on bringing that with me into the fall and I will be using neutrals to compliment my look. The key pieces for me will be sweaters, jeans and accessories.
Speaking of accessories, I recently have been pairing this necklace from Happiness Boutique to compliment this and several other of my late summer to early fall transitional looks. I fell in love with their designs and I strongly encourage you to check them out. They are a European based company but don't worry ladies, they offer free international shipping and they have a great customer reward program :)
