As the chill of autumn blows in, plus size ponchos, capes and wraps are making their way to the forefront of fashion. I’m in love with the ease these accessories provide for staying warm without having to struggle with the burden of a heavy winter coat. Besides, winter seems to last for ages; there’ll be time enough for wrapping up in puffy coats and gloves!
I’ve been away on a business trip in the West Midlands in a more rural setting than the bustling Manchester city centre I’m used to and have felt the icy chill of autumn. I only brought a sweater and a scarf with me so I was ill-prepared for the quick change in temperature. Nipping into Tesco, I spotted a super soft, chunky and warm poncho that I had to have and thus began my poncho and cape obsession.
