With winter in full swing and many months yet to go, vintage-loving fashionistas should choose to cozy up in something warm, unique, and most importantly: fashionable. A poncho, shawl, or wrap does the trick when you want to make a statement, and Etsy has some of the best options. Whether you choose something elegant and refined like the pussybow poncho in cream by MrMisterVintage or want something more vibrant like the south western fleece by naninvintage, you’ll be sure to gain plenty of compliments for your great sense of style.
Ponchos and wraps look stylish when paired with skinny jeans, or you can make a retro statement by layering one over some bell bottoms. Choose a solid color in a long length for wearing over dresses or trousers. Don’t forget that you can cinch the waist with a belt to alter the shape and make your poncho a tad more flattering. Since ponchos are sans sleeves, you can wear a pair of elegant over-the-elbow gloves for extra warmth. Additionally, a cute hat can complete the ensemble. Try a floppy hat, beret, or beanie.
