Choosing a poncho for style is different from wearing a poncho that provides protection from the elements. These shirts have extra fabric, but the location of the fabric is important when selecting the right top for you. Here are some tips when selecting a poncho.
While this versatile garment is looser, it should not completely erase your shape. These items do not encase someone like a tarp but are comfortable, and modern fashionable ponchos often have elongated sleeves. The extra fabric trails down the arms and creates a fluid, bohemian look that is embodied by the Ancestral Star and Monarch Butterfly pieces.
Best For: Shorter individuals
More traditional takes on the poncho are also available with the Amate Brown and Dreamcatcher options. If you like the conventional design but want a fashionable twist on it, the Pineda Covalin online fashion boutique uses light fabric that drapes over one's top half and creates a casual yet refined impression. This style also pairs well with leggings or skinny jeans.
Best For: Showing off the legs, medium or large frames
For those who fear that excess fabric will bunch up or look bulky, try the Hidalgo Embroidery Chiffon or Tzotzil Plum Chiffon garments. The chiffon keeps traveling down past the midsection and has a narrower, elongated appearance. One could wear shorts for a casual day out when still wanting a high fashion look. These ponchos are versatile and can be dressed up as well.
Best for: Tall individuals, narrow frames
