Fashion trends are mysterious and mysterious. Representatives of South American nations would be very surprised to learn that their national warm capes won the love of fashionistas all over the world. But this is exactly what happened with the poncho.
First appearing on the podium in the 60-70s of the XX century, the poncho was rapidly gaining popularity. With the simplest cut, the thing turned out to be comfortable, stylish and versatile. Today, ponchos are popular with fashion designers and urban fashionistas.
During this time, the poncho has changed a lot. Initially it was a rectangular piece of fabric with a slit for the head. No sleeves were envisaged. The American Indians used such capes to keep warm. Each tribe had its own colors and patterns, so it also served as a distinctive sign. Today, the poncho boasts a huge variety of models and colors.
When to wear a poncho? All seasons are equally good for this cape! As an outerwear, it is ideal for the off-season. Depending on the material and model, you can choose the option for any weather and temperature. For the cold winter, designers have created special warmed options and fur ponchos. And the summer season was captured by lace capes and beach models - light, bright and comfortable.
Another advantage of the poncho is its versatility. It will go to owners of all types of shapes. Poncho fits perfectly in a variety of styles. Business, classic, romantic, youth, street - this is not a complete list! And for the ethno-style poncho - it's just an indispensable element!
For a poncho, it's easy to pick up the rest of the image. It will look good with jeans or classic pants, high boots or short ankle boots, skirts or dresses. Gloves and a hat can be a good addition. Length varies: this cape can be short, and can reach almost to the floor. But most often, preference is given to the average length - slightly below or slightly above the knee. Fabrics for ponchos are no less diverse than its styles. Knitted and knitted variants are especially popular.
It doesn't matter if you prefer high neck models, buttoned buttons, pinned up pins, or simply no clasps; whether you are planning a walk in the park or a trip to work. If you don’t have a poncho in your wardrobe, you miss a lot!
