Spring and Fall Staples: The Goncho

We had a very mild winter where I live this year and it is starting to get nice out! It is perfect poncho weather; I had been looking for a good poncho for years and now they are EVERYWHERE! They are great for me as I love clothing with movement; I often read about how texture/pattern/etc. can add interest to an outfit......for me clothing that moves and flows when a person walks always catches my eye. They are also great because they're comfortable and easy to wear with a wide variety of outfits. 

The Lip Service cowl-neck-poncho-sweater thing below was dubbed a "goncho" by a friend of mine (a contraction of the words goth and poncho).

Do you have any ponchos? How do you like to style them?

  1. Seems like you can pull off virtually everything! The term goncho is great, but I don't own any. I find them restricting on my arms and cold on my belly...

  2. Wow... these outfits are so lovely... I especially LOVE that highly obnoxious poncho from Killstar Clothing :D
    I have several ponchos but I´m yet to wear them.. I have no idea honestly why I´ve never wore them... well one I´ve used but it is really thick and heavy.. I used it once when I went with a friend to her summerplace during winter and it was cold there.. it was perfect then cause it´s so thick :)

  3. I LOVE ponchos! I actually have one that I knit myself: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/blueberrybard/hugo. They're comfy and great for the fall/winter, going out or just hanging out at home. I want to knit another one, but I knit SO SLOWLY.
