Ponchos are fabulous garments for girls, juniors and women. In girls shirts, play around with the fun of fringe, a great graphic, or mesmerizing stripes. For kids, it’s not the fashion-forward structure—with a loose fit and large sleeve—it’s the whimsy of color that makes a statement.
Ponchos play with shape when entering the world of juniors. Draw up the sleeve to three-quarter length or short sleeves, or extend the shirt down to create a dress. Remove cutouts from both shoulders of a shirt or add thickness to create a chic coat. Kids aren’t the only ones to have fun with fringe; test out different fabric effects in juniors attire—like ruffles, knits, and lace.
Ponchos for women employ the same architectural elements, but expand the collection by adding intriguing pattern. Try a stripe straight across or heading down diagonally with the falling of the sleeves. Explore ikat prints or equally exotic tribal designs. Let the pattern flow throughout or keep it as an accent on trim to highlight the shape of a shirt. The loose design inspires laidback prints; try out a fun splash of tie-dye color. Pattern doesn’t have to be exotic; reshape traditional floral prints into ponchos—creating a sweet, soft look when combined with the flowing fabric.
