When we think of the term “poncho,” we may still be visualizing the clear, giant trash bag mom and dad used to throw over us in the pouring rain, expecting it to feel like it wasn’t raining on us [note: it was definitely still raining on us]. But over the past several years, ponchos have become a staple in women’s closets from the moment that first leaf hits the ground, taking them all the way through winter. While there are different styles of ponchos out there, today I’m showing you a few different ways to wear the open front style- dressed up for work or an event, and a date night look!
I think what I love most about a poncho is that it’s essentially giving me the green light to have a blanket around me all day or night and call it clothing. Maybe this is why so many people are adding these to their wardrobes- they’re catching onto the “I can wear a blanket all day” idea. I’ve yet to find a poncho that isn’t super cozy, and they come in so many amazing patterns, colors, styles, and even materials!
Lord & Taylor is a great resource for finding a poncho [or two] to either start your poncho collection or add to your poncho addiction. During their Friends & Family Event [now through 10/23], you can save an extra 30% on almost everything and save 15% on almost all beauty! Whether it’s taking advantage of their buy online pick up in store option, or being a member of their Loyalty Rewards Program, there’s so much to love about Lord & Taylor. And let’s not forget, they carry SO many of my favorite brands [Sam Edelman, Liverpool, Vince Camuto, Spanx, and more!]
