Wearing | Namoi Designs

 

If there’s one thing I love to do on a Saturday afternoon it’s go and visit my cousin Kalila in her little shop on Glen Osmond Rd – Namoi Designs. (say Na-Moi, not Naomi)

I have watched Namoi grow right from its inception, starting with a few pieces here and there, growing into markets and an online shop and finally to where it is today, a real life bricks and mortar store.

Each time I visit the store there’s one particular style that always catches my eye…. The chiffon Poncho.

It’s one of Namoi’s versatile signature styles that I am drawn to…. E.v.e.r.y time…

I love it, and not just because of nepotism (jokes), they are a dream to wear and are all ethically made right here in SA.

Last Saturday was no different, I set my eyes on the new Autumn colours and…..well im pretty sure you know how this story ends.

I love a poncho for many reasons, first it cuts and skims in all the right places. The chiffon material gives you a defined silhouette underneath so you are not swamped by excess fabric.

The key to wearing this style of top? Keep your bottom layers streamlined. Think leggings, skinny leg jeans, fitted skirts….  Apart from that go crazy ladies, the styling opportunities are endless.

Here I have styled them with my pleather look leggings, skinny leg jeans, and even a long slip that I’m trying to pass off as a skirt, it’s the kind of look I’ll go for if I’m going out with ma leading ladies to dance until the sun comes up. I also threw it on over a long maxi dress and knotted it to show more shape but the photo didn’t turn out so you’ll just have to take my word for it!

I haven’t added a necklace or many accessories as it’s not always my thing but if I was going to I would add a long necklace to draw the eye down and elongate my usually short self.

These tops are being added to the online store later on today (Wednesday) and are also available in store or via phone!

The poncho is a one size all kind of deal, ranging from sizes 8-14 but there is plenty of room in here so I would even go as far as to say it would fit up to an 18 comfortably and retails for $129 for the burgundy and $99 for the sand (Sand currently on sale).

These two were kindly gifted to me in accordance with my disclosure policy.
