Cover Story: The Summer Poncho

The knotty question that faces me year after year is what to wear when the weather warms up. Too warm for a coat and too cool for no coat?

And then there’s the other little question of those few extra pounds I put on for winter warmth for which the beginning of summer affords no hiding place.

This year I found the answer. It’s the summer poncho; the perfect cover up that’s light, comfortable, elegant and forgiving. The answer to this maiden’s prayer, it comes in a choice of two styles; lightweight knitted linen or reversible two-tone modal and cashmere, also lightweight.

I loved them so much and I couldn’t decide on which colours to have for the website so I went for lots of them; neutrals in black (of course), navy, white and taupe; brights in fuchsia and cobalt blue; and pastels in powder blue,  aquamarine and silver grey.

I picked a white linen one for myself and it has scarcely been off my back. I have worn it over jeans, with vest tops and shirts and it has attracted compliments galore. A little more than an accessory perhaps but a wonderful ‘take you anywhere’ cover up.
