The curious case of the ‘poncho’

Just like the kimono was one of the biggest trends of the summer, the autumn/winter equivalent would be the poncho/cape trend. I first saw a poncho this fall on the model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who was rocking one of those gorgeous custom Burberry ponchos with her initials, also seen on other celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Sarah Jessica Parker and Olivia Palermo.

I was obsessed with its beauty, but unfortunately the Burberry poncho was of course way too pricey, so I began looking for the right poncho which would also be affordable. Thankfully, my mother surprised me by buying me a poncho from TK Maxx as a present, which was stylish, comfortable and warm. My best friend called it a ‘socially acceptable blanket’ and I couldn’t think of a better way to describe it.

I’ve done a bit of research and found some great affordable and fashionable ponchos that you could buy and join onto the poncho trend train, because trust me – you won’t want to leave!

As you can see some ponchos I’ve picked out have very loud patterns but hey, the more extravagant the better! I’ve tried to include a good, affordable price range and I hope you’ve enjoyed some of my suggestions.
