Black And White Chic In Our Batik Print Poncho
Last week was my son’s birthday and I still can’t get over the fact that he is now 20 years old. Even though I miss the days when he was a little boy, I am enjoying this stage of him becoming a young man.
He is working for his fathers company this summer and for the first time I see him showing interest in the business world. He enjoys seeing how a company is run which is a good thing since he is majoring in business. It is just great thing to see your kids transitioning into adults and seeing the world in a different perspective.
For his birthday he is having a party this weekend for his friends, but on the actual day, July 7th, we took him and his girlfriend out to his favorite sushi restaurant. We all had a great time and then came back to our house after for cake.
I thought this would be a good occasion for me to style our brand new Batik black and white print poncho. The Batik poncho is such a multi functional piece. You can wear it casually with shorts and sandals or even as a cover up for the pool or you can dress it up like I have done today.
It is a very soft, lightweight fabric that is such a easy piece to throw on over a dress especially for a night out. It has a beautiful batik inspired print with black tassels all around which make is so much more fun. I chose to wear it with my LBD so I could show you a few different ways to style this poncho.
As you can see in the photos below.
- Wearing it loose over the dress
- Pulling one side up over your shoulder as you would do with a shawl
- Wearing it belted
I am sure there are a few more ways it can be styled as well. As far as accessories I chose two different pieces for each look. For the loose look I added our gunmetal chain with ivory marbleized stone necklace. For the belted look I thought the necklace didn’t work as well so I switched to our Black chandelier earrings which I think works perfectly with the Batik print. To finish off the look, I wore my lace up sandals and for a pop of color I added my red bag.
