12 Jan Turning Heads #linkup- Trying Something New-Zara Poncho, Brown Faux Leather Leggings
Welcome to another weekly edition of Turning Heads Tuesday!!!
Today I thought I would try something a bit different. I asked Santa for this poncho first of all. When I opened the box this thick, geometric, super soft, poncho is in the shape of a giant square. I am not used to this! I like my clothes mainly fitted to my shape, so this is new territory. I love the way they look on others, so I thought, ” Take a risk, why not?” If it doesn’t work out, I can blame it on Santa!
The geometric pattern caught my eye with the colors of mustard, taupe and brown seeming a very artistic mix with this sweater. I do know about proportions, so I decided to pair this with these amazing chocolate brown leather leggings from Zara as well. Big, flowy sweater/poncho, skinny or long proportions on the bottom. To further lengthen the look, I am wearing my grey flannel heels ( that I wore for this look only.. as I dont wear a high heel). One could add a bold color to the shoe if desired to add a pop of color, but I am fresh out of cobalt stilletos, so you will have to imagine! I wanted a mix of various shades of browns and neutrals, mustard, chocolate, oatmeal/taupe, grey. I added a long gold pendant necklace, with additional gold leaf earrings to compliment.
I was quite happy I did try something new for me, and didn’t jump to conclusions as soon as I took it out of the package. I think it was quite fun! ( as fashion should be wink*wink*)
