Perfect ponchos: 8 ways to wear the trend


Put a swish in your step with a dramatic poncho

It’s official – the poncho is back.

The Noughties saw the poncho trend hit the high street in a big way, especially when boho style was at its most popular. Recent years, however, have seen less of them, with brands opting for traditional jumpers and sweatshirts. All changed this autumn, when the glittering runways of New York, London, and Paris saw models sporting ponchos in a variety of patterns, styles, and colours.

The knitwear piece is perfect for winter layering and adds a bit of drama to an everyday outfit. Pair with chunky earrings and a long skirt for a high-fashion look, or over jeans with boots to style up a cosy autumnal outfit. Here are our top pieces that you can shop now, from budget-friendly to investment pieces.
