Trends, me? Not so much, but you have to admit the cape poncho is one hard to resist, so as soon as I spotted this Burberry inspired one, I knew exactly how I wanted to style it, namely with these OTK boots I bought last year.

The reason why I refuse to give in to trends (unless I love it too much and suits me) is mainly because I want to avoid buying stuff that I will only wear one or two seasons. Therefore, sometimes I wonder and question what we all call ‘timeless’ clothing and basics, and I ask myself whether or not people thought mom jeans were atemporal during the 90’s, since I remember clearly that if anyone dared to wear them last decade, everyone would have watched you as if you were an alien.

Ponchos and capes, however, will always come and go, and I think I will wear this printed number even if it’s ‘out’. In fact, I have decided that I will wear what I want and what looks good on me regardless of it being ‘in’ or not. How about you? What do you think about ponchos and how do you feel about trends or being into trendy fashion? Would you wear something that is out of style or even obsolete in the fashion world  if you love it?


Trends? Ich? Nicht so gerne, aber man muss zugeben, dass Ponchos unwiderstehlich sind. Deshalb musste ich diesen von Burberry inspirierten Poncho von Zara kaufen, sobald ich ihn sah und ich wusste ganz genau wie ich ihn kombinieren wollte, nämlich mit diesen Überknie-Stiefeln, die ich letztes Jahr bei H&M ergattert habe.

Der Grund dafür, warum ich Trends nicht so gerne folge (außer wenn sie zu mir und meinem Stil passen), ist, dass ich es vermeide, Sachen zu kaufen, die ich nur für eine oder zwei Saisons tragen werde. Deswegen frage ich mich ab und zu, was wir genau ‘zeitlos’ nennen. Während der neunziger dachte jeder, dass Mom-Jeans zeitlos waren, aber wenn man sie letzes Jahrzehnt getragen hätte, hätte einen jeder komisch angesehen.

Im Gegensatz dazu werden Capes und Ponchos immer wieder im Trend sein. Auch wenn ich falsch läge und sie nie wieder trendig wären, würde ich sie trotzdem tragen. Ja, ich liebe sie einfach. Und ihr? Was haltet ihr von Ponchos und würdet ihr etwas tragen, das nicht gerade Trend ist?


Tendencias, yo? No tanto, pero debéis admitir que los ponchos son difíciles de resistir, así que cuando ví éste inspirado en los de Burberry en Zara supe exactamente cómo lo quería combinar, es decir, con estas botas que compré el ano pasado en H&M.

La razón por la cual no me gusta mucho seguir tendencias (a menos que me favorezcan) es más que todo por que quiero evitar comprar ropa o zapatos que sólo voy a usar por una o dos temporadas. Por ello, me pregunto a menudo qué es lo que exactamente llamamos ‘atemporal. Por ejemplo, durante la década de los 90, todos pensaban que los mom jeans eran atemporales, pero si uno hubiese llevado esos jeans durante la década pasada, todos nos hubiesen visto como si fueramos extraterrestres.

Por otra parte, los ponchos y las capas siempre van y vienen, o al menos eso he observado. Sea como sea y si me equivoco y jamás volviesen a estar de moda, pues no me importaría y seguiría llevándolos como ahora. Sí, me encantan! Qué hay de vosotras? Os gustan las capas? Llevaríais algo que está obsoleto en el mundo de la moda?

    Buenas tardes Laura! Encantada de escribir mi primer comentario en tu blog ☺️

    En mi caso, elaboro un estilismo con piezas que llevan muchísimo tiempo en mi armario (y puede que estén “obsoletas”) junto con las nuevas propuestas del mercado, sean o no tendencia. Me gusta más invertir en lo atemporal que en la tendencia. En colores neutros, en el negro, gris y blanco, y en piezas de toda la vida.

    Muchísimas gracias por tu buen “saber” y tu buen “hacer”

    I think ponchos are totally timeless and feel incredibly fresh when styled like this. I love how you made it feel somewhat dress-like. So freaking chic and killer with those boots. You really look amazing in this kind of look my friend. And I agree- I won’t just wear something because it’s ‘in’ but on the flipside, I wouldn’t be afraid to wear something that’s considered ‘out’. It’s all about personal preference and what suits you. I just wear whatever makes me happy I guess. 🙂

  9. […] A poncho is not exactly what comes to mind when you think about minimalist style. However, if you are thinking about how to wear a poncho and not look like if you’re going to Coachella , you might be surprised to find out how easy it is to make it look modern and up-to-date (like for instance also here).
