Winter’s Most Versatile Buy – How To Wear A Poncho

If you want to update your wardrobe with a single piece this season, do it with a poncho!

It’s a versatile piece and will work wonders hiding any insecurities – from the stubborn muffin top to big busts, the poncho conceals it all!

Here are our style tips on how to wear a poncho…

  • Belt your poncho around your waist for a new way to wear it. A pair of slim leg jeans will complement the shape. This is also ideal if you’re busty as it draws attention down to the waist.
  • Pair a longer length poncho with heels to elongate your figure.
  • Checked and printed ponchos easily disguise lumps and bumps and you can wear them with almost anything, making this one of the most versatile cover-ups on the high street!
  • Go for a chunky poncho to disguise a big tummy and streamline your figure. Keep your outfit underneath quite simple and let the knit make a statement.
  • Vertical stripes are flattering on almost every body shape, the v neckline works especially well if you want to minimise your upper body.
