Ponchos are my go-to.
The truth is, whether it’s strange or not, I absolutely love them. Love them.
Like a comfort mac n’ cheese or a rom-com, they make me feel good.
Ponchos are super comfortable, cosy and sometimes they even answer the what-to-wear conundrum when nothing else comes to the rescue. Not to mention, it is the best travel companion of all. No plane trip of mine goes without a poncho in the hand luggage and especially if the flight is long. They are the best at making what is generally a not so comfortable experience a whole lot better. It’s the whole wrapping up and the 360 degrees envelopment that changes the game. A cashmere shawl is great but if you fidget, like me, it unravels. Or gets stuck.
A trifecta is ideal.
There is the “travel” poncho, not too long and not too detailed that packs well and relaxes well.
The one that is slightly longer, with more elegance and flair. This one still works for travel but also fabulous for evening adventures.
Pure fun with a dose of practicality and the one I’m wearing all weekend.
And the best part, for a change, no sizing to worry about. xv
