A wardrobe must! Always comfortable. Always chic. Always effortless. The poncho is every girl's best friend - It is as forgiving as it is stylish. It is as adaptable as it is consistent. It's forgiving - it doesn't care whether you've had one too many slices of that delicious coconut cake! Whether worn casually with jeans or more formally, this stylish cloak-like garment is the perfect piece to wear while the temperatures dip. Large loose and blanket-like layers can be easily worn beneath for added warmth. When you can't decide wether you'd prefer to wear a sweater or a jacket... Look no further.
