Ponchos are back this winter (like capes coats), but more stylized than ever. Here Kate Hudson wears a Louis Vuitton Poncho from the 2010 Pre-Fall Collection while at the Tribeca Film Festival. Ponchos these days don't have to look tribal, they can also look quite sleek and work well as a big cozy sweater.
Here are some of my picks for modern ponchos:
James Perse Striped Poncho ($350 at Neiman Marcus)
Nordstrom Convertible Knit Poncho (On sale for $38.90, was $78 at Nordstrom)
MICHAEL Michael Kors Heathered Poncho ($120 at Nordstrom)
Madewell Bird's Eye Stitch Poncho ($198 at Shopbop)
Rag & Bone Northfield Poncho (On sale for $556.50, was $795 at Shopbop)
