Fur (or faux fur, if you please) and cape or poncho-shaped coats are some of the hottest trends for fall/winter 09 outerwear. And this vintage-inspired fur neck poncho by Kimchi & Blue is cute enough to make Little Red Riding Hood jealous.
Urban Outfitters is one of my fave shops to cop trendy, carefree pieces. The reasonable price point of almost all of UO’s items make it a perfect one-stop shop for fashionable guys and gals. Kimchi & Blue is always on point when it comes to feminine, but not over the top, styles. This fur neck poncho is case in point.
The cape shape is back in a big way. Blame it on all of the vampire craze goin’ on these days. This one is ultra-feminine, meaning not too rediculously oversized. The outer shell is made of a lush, grey wool, topped off with chunky, brass buttons and oversized pockets to hold all your goodies (remember, that when wearing a cape, carrying a bag becomes slightly awkward)! The faux fur collar is perhaps my favorite detail. I love the soft, off-white, rabbit-like fur, giving the coat an equisitely whimsical feel.
The poncho paired with skinny jeans tucked into riding boots would be a faboosh casual daytime look. I would also definitely top a layered outfit of nubbly tights, laced-up ankle boots, and tunic dress with this poncho.
At just $138, the Kimchi & Blue Fur Neck Poncho is a near steal for all the wear you’ll get out of it. Start wearing it right now, and simply add on layers underneath as the weather gets colder!
