When I was in junior high, ponchos became a thing. I had several, but in particular, I remember a knit one that incorporated shades of teal and pink with white accents. It was just as cute as you’d imagine.
When that trend left my life, things were for the better. I moved on. But of the many embarrassing outfits that I proudly sported, I’d rank ponchos among only the most elite, which explains why I have a bit of a bias against them.
Now that they’re officially back in style, albeit under a variety of other names, I’ve decided to revisit them. To give myself a chance to make up for those horrid outfits of autumns past.
This whole outfit is just ridiculously comfortable. Whoever figured out that ponchos are really just an excuse to wrap yourself up in a super-soft sweater is onto something. It’s a perfect movie theater outfit, if you ask me.
