Are ponchos now hopelessly naff and out of date?

Will I be arrested by the style police if I wear one? Or will I get off with a caution because I'm 40?

My eldest is still permanently attached to hers - but she's 9.

Still very fashionable in Italy. All the hip trendy people are wearing them over here.

I would say it depends on how you wear it, as with anything, they still look very good if worn in a stylish manner with very classic clothing, however if worn with 'trendy' stuff I would probably say no it will look naff.

Hmm I have stopped wearing them, but 2yo DD loves hers.

I am vastly pg and it is probably the only thing that would fit - but I still won't.

i think they are ok

you will get a caution but who cares as the style police are all 19 years old and know little of RL considerations. ponchos are comfy and give a person a little swing on an otherwise dull day

oooh no I am coming to the Uk on MOnday and purchased one as Tanktop says they are the No 1 item in Italy this year..and thought for once I would try to be on the edge of fashion . Well maybe 9 yr old niece might like it !!
