ribbed-turtleneck-poncho_111009We asked: Would you wear Ponchos?

You said:  No to Ponchos, with a 75% to 25% vote.

Style tip? Sure, Ponchos were hot in the early 2000s, and they’ve been regarded as fashion castoffs since.   But while ponchos aren’t for everyone and for every occasion, they can still be worn in style.  How do you look sophisticated in a poncho?  Look for a poncho that drapes well.  While stiffer ponchos can create an unflatteringly large silhouette up top, drapey fabrics are much more figure friendly.

Next question: Clutch Handbags are so chic, but they don’t fit very much of your stuff.  But what do you think?  Tell us, would you carry a Clutch Handbag?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    What’s wrong with ponchos? I think with skinny jeans they can look pretty great. Especially lovin the Theory….

    I must admit, the black poncho I knitted I love but haven’t worn in several seasons. What about capes???? Yes, I would definitely do the clutch.

    I love ponchos and have at least 4! I think they can be very chick with the right accessories and knee high boots!

    I still don’t really know how these work. I like the idea, but it’s definitely out of my box to wear one out.
