Hi my Inside-Out Beauties!
As some of you may know, ponchos have become very trendy, and hit the runways across the world.
Their popularity spiked around Fall 2011, and since then they have been worn by women all over the world, including famous celebrities such as...
Kate Hudson, Jessica Simpson and Sandra Bullock.

If you've never heard of one before, ponchos have been used by the Native American peoples of the Andes since pre-Hispanic times and are now considered typical South American garments.
Being born and living in Argentina, I can tell you this is a very traditional item to wear in my country, and the variety of ponchos worn is quite diverse throughout our country.
So, today I wanted to write about my fave Fall/Winter item: my pale blue poncho! And show you some pictures that will hopefully inspire you :)
I realize many of you may be in summer right now... But this knitted poncho is actually knitted with big holes, so it's reasonably fresh and could be suitable for a cooler summer night at many beach locations, or for a windy Spring day too!
And that is a HUGE plus for me.... I just can't wear any itchy fabric. [ Does that happen to you too? ]
As most ponchos, it has a triangular shape, that ends in a peak around the hip area.
This actually makes this short poncho very flattering for all body shapes, as it elongates our body.
As you can see in the pictures above, the borders of this poncho have fringes. These, in my opinion give it a cozy look. I often like to wear it with a tank top and skinny jeans.
