With snowstorms perilously making their way across the country–stealthily avoiding sunny SoCal–it’s no shocker that fashionistas everywhere are bundling up in soft-to-the-touch cashmeres, cozy cable knits, and warm wool blends. Seemingly easy to toss on layers: styling print button-downs with embroidered cardigans or even opting for a tough-as-nails leather look, there’s one miss that a lot of people seem to fall victim to: the tribal poncho!
When we say this look is a miss, we’re talking sheep herders probably have more fashionable attire than the tribal cape. Not even Betty Suarez (aka Ugly Betty) could pull off the poncho!
The tribal print poncho not only creates an unflattering shape, but it boasts an unflattering shape with a blaring print, like wearing a huge sign that says “Stop, I like to pretend I’m a farm rancher on my casual days.”
Tribal-inspired ponchos are getting The Pink Slip!
