In between the cardigan and the coat, lies the poncho. The cuddliest coverall – ever! Celebrity fans include Karlie Kloss, Lupita Nyong’o and Rhianna to name but a few. We love it for it’s laid back appeal and absolute 100% comfort factor. But the best bit? You can honestly feel like you’ve just rolled out of bed without looking that way!

But although comfort is the key appeal here, the overall feel must remain on chic terms. So, here are three Stylizen guidelines to ensure you poncho with panache!

For Day

Go with a bohemian-style printed poncho. Channel your inner-Pocahontas and work it back with a frayed denim jean, a cute boot and a flippy, floppy hat!
