It's difficult to wear a coat on top of a poncho unless you have a cape. I bought a poncho last year and wore it a lot during transitional seasons, often with flares. It was particularly nice in the evening when it was a bit cool but not cold enough for a coat. But do wear it indoors: if the house is a bit draughty there is nothing more comforting.
I always like the look of ponchos and gilets but never find the right time to wear them. Its either raining, too cold or I am wearing something thar doesnt go. If all the conditions are right i forget to wear it hence the gilets and ponchos unworn in my wardrobe!
