The Poncho is back! Whether you like it or not! If only we all had the money to get our initials printed on a Burberry cape! They cost a whopping €1,000 and extra to add your initials! Celebrities such as SJP, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Olivia Palermo and Cara Delevingne have been spotted working the Burberry Poncho/Cape and it is amazing!
This Autumn/Winter season sees the return of the poncho – they first came about 10 years ago, heavily fringed and high neck and here they are once again! But don’t fret, they have been re-invented! Instead of just throwing your head into a poncho and your arms either side, this trend has more of a cape feel. You could nearly compare it to a throw over or a blanket, and it works so well! The poncho look is going to be the must have cover up for the winter season.
The Burberry capes are one of a kind but the high street stores have a different approach. They have ran with the nomadic look which is full of patterns particularly Aztec prints. New Look have gorgeous cream and black ponchos, easy to match with denim jeans and knee-high boots!
New Look €29.99
The best way to wear these ponchos is to team them up with neutrals or pastels, making the poncho your statement piece.
Although the cape/poncho would appeal to those that are more into fashion than the rest, the excessive material is forgiving and suitable to all body shapes and is without doubt cosy and comfy! Keeping it glam instead of casual and relaxed, dress the cape with high waist shorts, tights and boots. A cape with a wide neckline would allow for a shirt with a collar to be worn, adding that extra preppy look.
Rich and bright coloured ponchos such as fuchsia pink matched with tailored trousers and elegant heels is perfect for a dinner date with your girlfriends or your other half.
You can double up on style this winter by purchasing a poncho with a faux fur collar, or simply a clip on collar, they look so elegant and will act as a scarf too, keeping you snug!
The Poncho is perfect for out – door wear, preventing you from hiding your outfit with a jacket this winter. A classy, easy to wear piece that probably will stick around for the seasons ahead!
Look Pocho perfect this Christmas!
