Yes, you heard me. Get ready for the return of the poncho. Or the cape – whatever you call it, to me, there’s little difference. Believe me, I do love the idea of covering everything up with a big comfy sweater, but as a pear-shape, ponchos aren’t for me; I think they work best on ladies with skinny legs, otherwise the proportion is totally off.
I can’t say I don’t WANT a poncho/cape though. I’ve been coveting this one (although Alex is calling it a “batwing sweater” since I saw it at Barney’s Co-Op a couple of months ago (when will it go on sale???)
It would NOT look good on my body shape.
Neither would this one – although it might be better since it seems a bit more fitted at the waist – and it least it can be worn open:
Theoretically, something like this Leyendecker poncho could work on a pear or apple shape since it looks like it could be belted, which would at least offer a peek at some shape. And I love the print:
or maybe this version by Joie could work if it was tucked in at the front:
What do you think? Are you ready for the return of the poncho? Will you wear them?
