FASHION FROM ABROAD: Just Throw on a Poncho

An ultimate must-have this winter is the poncho. This Fashionista wore an oversized printed poncho, a weather-appropriate choice on a dreary day in Georgetown. It’s hard to dress up when there's a chance of rain, so a casual look is a safe bet. Paired with cuffed skinny jeans and Tory Burch Reva ballet flats, the Fashionista’s triangle-shaped poncho makes a big yet subtle statement using neutral colors. She sure looks comfortable, an important aspect of fashion that is often overlooked.

A vintage-printed sweater poncho from National Jean Company looks naturally chic over a pair of dark leggings. A colorful fringe poncho will instantly spice up any ensemble.

A poncho of thicker material, such as wool or acrylic, can serve as chic outerwear. Marie Claire listed a Club Monaco poncho in its Super-Luxe Looks for Less feature, giving readers affordable alternatives. 

A poncho hides any insecurity you may have on those days when nothing seems to fit correctly — and we all have those days. Throw on a poncho, and you’re ready to go. Sizing is different for everyone, but a form-fitting poncho is never recommended. Lucky for us, the poncho is an accepted, stylish look appropriate for any age.
