Fringed Poncho C/O Shopbop | Turtleneck C/O Shopbop | Mini Skirt from Forever 21 | Secret Tights | Steve Madden Pumps

I had the 1960s in mind when I was putting this outfit together, so I opted for a classic black turtleneck paired with a black mini skirt and black tights and heels. The fringed poncho is the same one featured in last week's outfit post. I've really been loving it lately, especially because where I live is quite cold and it's brilliant for just wearing round the house, as well as out and about. Just a really simple and classic kind of look. And quite comfortable, as well! 

P.S. One of the online shops I collaborate with on Life In Red Lipstick, Shopbop, is having their annual Family & Friends Event. Use the code 'INTHEFAM25' for 25% all orders. The sale runs until 11.55pm PDT on Thursday 15 October. You can find out more here.


Outfit | On The Fringes

I vaguely remember ponchos being stylish when I was a kid. I had a light pink one from La Senza Girl. I hadn't owned one since until I bought a grey woollen one at a thrift shop last year. However, it's not yet left the closet.

The difference between that poncho and this camel poncho is weight and colour. The lightweight fabric creates more movement and feels less blankety. And the solid camel colour lends to a more chic look than grey wool fabric tends to do.

When wearing something very unstructured, I always like to pair it with something fitted. I don't like to feel swallowed up, so to speak, by drapey fabric. So I paired this poncho with black skinny jeans.

For accessories and shoes, I wore a pair of cheap gold hoops and my beloved fringed boots from last winter. It may be a faux pas to wear two fringed things at once, I'm not sure. I'm also not sure I really care.
