Wraps, Ponchos, Ruana, Cape: Whatever you call them this season’s must have trend is a blanket scarf (or whatever name you choose) wrapped around your shoulders, layered or even belted. A few months ago I belted one of my favorite such scarves thinking that I was doing a great job of knocking of Burberry but I had NO idea how pervasive and explosive this trend would be. But here’s the secret: a wrap or ruana draped over your shoulders looks almost identical to a large scarf if you drape it correctly.
The scarf worn above is one of my favorite oversize fluffy scarves from Zara and I love wearing it as a poncho. On it’s own a wrap is a chic update for your wardrobe but wearing it over a jacket or a blazer takes it to the next level. This layering adds sophistication and keeps you from becoming too bohemian when your goal is a sophisticated look. So dig out a fabulous scarf, your favorite blazer or leather jacket, throw a belt on it and get ready to be fabulously well dressed this winter.
