Pulled-together and practical.

Forget sleeves. This fall, opt for a one-size-fits-all poncho—a trendy outerwear piece with a comfort level akin to a blanket's. While traditionally marked by its squared-off shape and fringe embellishments, the modern-day poncho has a wide range of styles, prints, and trims to choose from. Considered less formal than a cape, a poncho can easily adapt to a variety of different outfits and suit any body type. On the Fall 2021 runways, designers from Etro to Jil Sander to Victor Glemaud deemed ponchos a trend-worthy silhouette, while they've been a standby on the runways at Chloé and Max Mara for years on end. Energized with new color combos and textures, it's about time to invest in one for fall.
