Look to blanket dressing this season for the ultimate in cosy chic. Our best-in-class pieces put comfort on the agenda, whatever the occasion.
On a crisp Winter’s day, we can’t think of anything more comforting than being snuggled on the sofa, wrapped up in a cosy throw, or super-soft robe. But, when hunkering down isn’t an option, we look to ponchos; the closest thing to being cocooned in a blanket, they’re also wonderfully versatile and stylish. This season, we’ve added more ponchos than ever to our style roster – discover why we love them (and how you’ll love to wear them, too).
- They’re timeless
Season after season, ponchos retain their prime spot in our wardrobes – from cool Summer nights to the coldest days in December. Edging into Autumn, they make the perfect in-between-days outerwear when it’s just a little too warm to wear a coat.
If you’re looking for an indulgent investment, our Cashmere Poncho is the ultimate choice. Luxurious yet unfussy, with a flattering oversized shape, we’ve kept the two colour options neutral so you can effortlessly slip them over every outfit.
“Ponchos work brilliantly in Winter, and I often take one on a hot holiday, too, as they look great over a maxi dress when it cools down in the evenings.”
Chrissie Rucker MBE, Founder, The White Company
2. They’re versatile
There are few wardrobe staples that look as good with your favourite loungewear as they do dressed up with heels, but ponchos are a stylish exception. The key lies in keeping the bottom half of your outfit streamlined: think leggings, skinny jeans, or a slim-cut skirt. We love ours worn over our bestselling Ultimate Leggings, or Symons Jeans for tried-and-tested coffee-date style.
3. They suit everyone
If you’re petite, try our Triangle Poncho. With a classic crew-neck and hip-length hem, it’s the perfect alternative to a cardigan, and the cut won’t swamp a small frame. V-necks are forever-flattering if you have a fuller bust, and the same rule applies to ponchos. We love the gathered-wool design of our Rib Front Poncho, which gently skims your top half for an elegant finish.
4. Little ones love them, too
If it’s a battle to get your little ones into their coat each time Autumn comes around, ponchos are the answer, keeping them warm without being restrictive. Our hooded options are even cosier, offering added protection from the elements – ideal for snuggling up this half term.
