Would You Wear: A Poncho?

By Natalie |

Ponchos. At their best they’re like wearing your favorite blanket around all day and getting to call it “fashion.” At their worst they’re suffocating straight jackets without adequate arm holes. And how do you wear a purse on your shoulder when you’re wearing a poncho? These are the questions I ask myself whenever I encounter a poncho I am sorely tempted by.

But this year I made the plunge and will be gladly rocking a poncho come cooler temps. And anyway, I push a stroller, and the stroller holds my handbag (and if I were nursing, it would sort of be the best), so kind of the poncho is the ultimate mom machine, if you think about it.

I’ve put together a slide show of some of my favorite poncho looks, as well as some links to where you can nab an affordable (or not so affordable) poncho of your own. Give it a spin and tell me in the comments: would you wear a poncho?

Fringe Blanket Poncho

If Anthropologie is selling one, you know it's mainstream enough to try.
This poncho via Anthropologie, $148.

P.S. “This poncho via?” Eh? Pancho Villa? Just me? Okay. Sorry.
