Trend Alert: Ponchos and Capes!

Now that the fall weather is finally upon us, we can finally take out our warm weather gear.  Woohoo!  It's the one time of the year when we hijabis can pile on the layers without feeling or looking silly.  One of our favorite trends this fall:  PONCHOS AND CAPES!

Why you ask?  Well, for starters, if you wear them correctly, they're really good at hiding any flaws, particularly if you have a hefty midsection, aka a muffin top.  Hee hee!  Secondly, it's like wearing a blanket, but looking chic while doing so.  Can't beat that, right?  Sort of like a wearable Snuggie!  Although, I'm definitely not suggesting anyone wear a Snuggie out.  Total fashion DON'T!  And finally, because the weather in fall is not so bitterly cold, ponchos and capes provide just the right amount of protection from the cold.

Here are some of our favorite capes and ponchos.

Gemma Poncho, Banana Republic

Extra fine merino wool cape, Banana Republic

Parkhurst 'Desmona' Faux Fur Trim Ruana, Nordstrom

MICHAEL Michael Kors Faux Fur Trim Poncho Sweater, Nordstrom

If not for any other reason, at least you can look like Superwoman (or, even better, Superhijabi!) while sporting one of these :-).  Happy poncho/cape hunting peeps!
