If the first thought that pops into your head when you hear ponte is “what’s that?” then you’re in for a real treat. A stretchy, shape-retaining double-knit fabric that’s breathable, flexible, and just as gorgeously wrinkle-free at 9 p.m. as it was at 9 a.m., ponte is an absolute fall godsend! This season we’ve released five to-die-for ponte pieces in jet black that match back to everything and create a strong base to build your fall wardrobe around.
We especially love ponte clothing paired back to bright blouses, cardis and sweaters, jackets and outerwear in tantalizing shades of pink and red, head-turning heels in leopard print, flats with velvet embellishments, and chic suede booties. Or go for a head-to-toe take and let the accessories do the talking: think big pearls, lots of gold, and a belt to cinch it all together. Don’t worry—these jet-black basics cut such a sharp line there’s no risk of them getting lost amongst these brighter hues and bolder patterns. Watch the video for Becky’s take on the trend, and check out our tips on how to rock this capsule collection below!
For those of you familiar with ponte, chances are you think of the pieces you already own as workwear. But the thing we love most about these fresh fall five is that they can be styled for a totally casual take. We want to know: what’s your favorite ponte piece for fall, and how are you styling it for after-office hours, on the weekends, and everywhere in between? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
