Ponchos provide a sleeveless way to stay warm, while adding a special loose drape, asymmetrical silhouette or fabric feature. Ponchos for women are constantly being reimagined, showing up on runways in all lengths and colours, worn both with dressy attire as a wrap, or casual attire as a loose throw, belted at the waist and more, since styling a poncho is extremely flexible. Where did the poncho first appear? The poncho originated in South America along the Andes Mountains. Highly-skilled weavers fashioned knitted ponchos by slitting a hole in a length of fabric which was placed around the neck, allowing the material to drape over the shoulders. The poncho held connotations of power as certain motifs were a sign of authority. The colorful poncho is also closely linked to Mexican culture, widely considered an iconic symbol of Mexico. Today, you’ll find waterproof cloaks in a poncho shape worn for rain protection, even used as raincoats for military troops. While the poncho was born out of the necessity to keep warm and protect the body from weather conditions whilst having the freedom of movement to work comfortably, it’s now primarily worn as a fashion accessory. As a prominent style piece during autumn and winter, popular among women of all ages and produced in a range of designs and fabrics, the poncho has become a must-have piece in the fashion world.
