Fashion Forward: Ponchos
From Slicker To Downright Slick. With all the Rain we're getting, purchasing a new poncho may not be such a bad idea. But if you think ponchos are just something you buy at an amusement park or a football stadium, think again. Here's the Nighttime's Shireen Sandoval with tonight's Fashion Forward.
(WSVN) -- It's the easiest way to Look Sleek And Feel Chic.
Elizabeth Kurtin: "I Feel Sexy."
Throw A Poncho over any outfit and you'll sizzle with style.
Elizabeth Kurtin: "Ponchos are very in, it's a must have for fall."
At Rebel Boutique, they say ponchos are very versatile. They come in tons of different colors and materials. Wear them as a bathing suit cover-up or throw one over a basic T and jeans.
Elizabeth Kurtin from Rebel Boutique: "You can put a Poncho over jeans with anything you want and it's just a great addition to your outfit."
But if you really want to stand out in the Poncho Parade. Turn on the heat by taking a little off underneath.
Elizabeth Kurtin: "You can wear a tank top, or if you are risky you can wear a bra."
At Burdines, they say not only will you look good and feel great, but this is one fashion must have that actually serves a purpose.
Melissa Goff from Burdines: "They are extremely light weight, its Great for us when we are going from the heat outside to the air-conditioning inside."
And this season, ponchos are revamping themselves. From cowlicks to fringe detail to jeweled accents, the looks are endless. There's definitely a poncho for every place.
Melissa Goff: "Of course they look great with jeans. They look great with a jean skirt but you can also wear it with a pair of great trousers to go to work."
And for fashion lovers who are pregnant, this is a great look for you too. Cover up your belly while staying in high style.
