I've been tossing on a poncho or a cape here and there this fall. Ponchos and capes are so classic, and yet on trend this season in a big way. And, prepare yourselves, this is one item in your closet that if you've had for ten years plus, is probably still good! Unlike your oversized leather and denim jackets which need to be tossed and updated, you likely have a good poncho or cape from the past that you can pull out and wear this season with great élan.
Let's look at some easy ways you can wear your ponchos or capes. (And if you're looking for one, there are some great styles in the October Style Vault, our members-only shopping and style guide.)
What is the difference between a cape and poncho?
A poncho is a rectangle and goes over your head. It has a hole for your head, and no other opening in the front.
A cape wraps around your shoulders (think Batman and Superman) and is made out of a circle, that opens to the front. It may or may not have holes for your arms. Historically capes had hoods.
