If you are searching for the ultimate winter hero, search no more. The poncho is the one staple every woman needs to keep her cosy and stylish throughout the cold months. Here are three reasons we love them.

1. They are functional

A poncho is the chicest way to quickly transform your outfits from plain to amazing. The flowing drape of the poncho makes it the ultimate easy-wear item for any busy mom – it keeps you warm but still makes a style statement. Pair them with skinny jeans or leggings for a streamlined look.

2. There’s a style for all body shapes

Petite ladies, opt for a shorter-length poncho or one that’s more fitted. Plus-size girls, slim-fit ponchos work best for you. Or try adding a belt around the narrowest part of your waist – this will accentuate your natural curves and conceal your tummy. Taller women can pull off longer lengths with bigger prints. Plain ponchos work for all body types.

3. They come in different styles and colours

If you like colours and prints, a poncho is the perfect way to fix the winter blues. Wear a coloured tee under your poncho for a pop of colour or simply choose one that has colour and an Aztec or tribal print to get the best of both worlds.
