However, there is one article of clothing that can easily be both stylish and comfortable.

I’m really enjoying the Khaki Eyelet Fringe Hem Asymmetrical Poncho Sweater from Romwe. It’s the perfect neutral hue for fall.  Neutral colors are more versatile and allow more pairing options. The playful fringe and the unique knit pattern save this simple piece from boredom. Tonight we are headed to a friend’s house for movies and board games.  Turn a simple jeans and t-shirt look into something stylish just by adding a poncho!  How do you like to wear ponchos?
