Ponchos are a cult classic. With Autumn truly upon us, brands have ventured far and wide to create ponchos in a variety of materials, prints and colours.
This versatile garment suits every woman. And while they are a wardrobe essential, there are a few considerations to keep in mind when choosing the best poncho for you:
Thinner frames and smaller busts suit ponchos with more structure. Conversely, women with fuller figures or larger busts suit ponchos flaunting a kaftan vibe, so the material can flow over your body.
Athletic frames suit thicker materials to add volume and curves to your figure. Curvier ramen suit any thickness because ponchos regardless of material will ensure your frame is properly displayed. One thing to note however, is that curvier women should gravitate toward materials that maintain fluidity so the poncho drapes over the figure. And as for women with a fuller stomach, a more stiff material will flatter your frame.
Necklines frame both the face and the upper body. understanding the necklines that work for you are important to ensure your poncho sits well on your body. Choosing the right neckline involves considering shoulder breadth and bust size.
To balance a broader shoulder and heavier bust, add an accessory that drapes down your torso, such as a long necklace. Ponchos can also feature vertical button detailing at the front. To tie in another trend from this season, opt for a statement belt to enhance your curves even more.
This week’s ensemble plays with texture and tone through the contrast elements in the poncho’s softness, the dress’ sheen and the masculinity emulated by the boots and accessories.
