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!
