New York Fashion Week had numerous surprises this year for the fashion conscious people all over the world. Some new luxurious fabrics presented such as velvet have been presented, but in the same time there have been some items that are coming back in force, such as the poncho. No matter how weird this may sound, this is the reality.
The first ponchos that have been presented on the runway have been the ones by BSBG that had a more minimalist approach to the trend. During the same week there have also been some spiced up versions of the same item presented by Altuzarra and Rag & Bone.

Many times the poncho has been associated with wearing a blanket, represented by the simple look of the creations from ADAM, Band of Outsiders and Edun. On the other hand there have also been some approaches that are more elegant and more feminine and these could have been spotted on the runway of Alexander Wang’s show. The ponchos that he came up with are a lot more feminine and they seem to set the trend this season.
In case you are one of those women who aren’t real fans of the style, there are some advantages that you should know about. One of them is that you can show the world that you are a true fashionista and you can be sure that you won’t be cold. This also means that the little black coat you had last year will have to stay in the closet this season.
Although the designer clothes are quite expensive for the majority of people, there are similar ponchos already available in the stores that have about the same style and look, the only difference being the label.
Since the ponchos make it difficult to have a bag on your sholder, you will have to opt for a clutch, and you will get some relief from the back pain that you have been experiencing because of the heavy bags.
There are some shorter and longer versions. In case of the longer ponchos nobody will know what you are wearing underneath, meaning that in case you only want to go and grab breakfast, you won’t have to spend a lot of time thinking about your outfit.
There are many colors and patterns to choose from so you can be sure to find the one that is just perfect.
