The Poncho – how to wear it and where to buy it

As Halloween had passed, it’s getting chillier by the day. It’s time for fluffy, warm sweaters. But there’s a new warm & comfortable sheriff in town – The Poncho.

Since last year, ponchos were everywhere from Fashion Week outfits to walking-the-dog-in-the-park outfits.

To me, the poncho has always seemed just a large, formless piece of material. But how come such a piece of cloth can look so chic and make me want it so bad, I do not know.

I blame Olivia Palermo and Burberry, I’m telling you.

So, now I’m looking for alternatives to traditional autumn sweaters and overcoats. Here’s what I like…

How to wear the poncho

Now that we’ve seen what ponchos we can buy online, let’s figure out how we can wear it & integrate it into our everyday outfits.

If you’re uncertain about how colors would look on you and want the poncho to seem a bit more elegant you should go the Palermo way with an all-black outfit.

You can also wear a poncho with a narrow belt over it. This will create that hourglass silhouette that’s been voted as the most attractive of all body types.
