Two Ways to Wear a Ruana

Whether you call it a wrap, poncho, or ruana, I’m into ’em. These outfit toppers are so easy to throw on over your basic outfits that will take your style up a notch. They’re also perfect for cooler days because wearing them feels so cozy. It’s like an acceptable way to wear a blanket all day. And it’s way more chic too! 😉 To show how versatile they are, and 100% why you need one, I’m sharing two ways to wear a ruana!

This first ruana outfit is definitely a go-to for me. Just add your favorite pair of jeans and a long sleeve tee! This basic combo works really well with a multitude of outfit toppers: a moto jacket, a puffer vest, a long cardi. But why I love it with this plaid ruana is because it really allows the wrap to be the center of the outfit. I stuck with a neutral color palette to keep the look simple and clean.

The second look is another simple combination, but a bit dressier! Like with the previous outfit, I stuck with a very neutral base. When dealing with a louder plaid, I love keeping the rest of the look more understated. Y’all know how much I love a basic tshirt dress. So for this look I just added my over the knee boots and ran out the door. Simple doesn’t have to be boring, right?!
