Let’s be honest, when you’re rushing to catch a 5 AM flight, it’s still dark, and you’ve had only two of your five cups of coffee, the last thing you’re thinking about is a stylish outfit to wear to the airport. Enter the poncho. Perhaps my most essential of winter travel staples. It checks all the boxes of airport style: versatile, cozy, and does a great job of hiding the mismatched outfit you thought looked good that morning. Here are five drapey, oversized ponchos to swaddle yourself in on your next winter jaunt.
The Mexican-inspired poncho
Because it’s warm wool but has summery vibes and a built in scarf and pockets to keep your passport and phone.
The reversible poncho
Because two ponchos are better than one.
The statement poncho
Because you could be wearing pajamas and unicorn slippers and it would still look like style.
The hooded poncho
Because you can throw on your headphones, throw up the hood and disappear for a few hours.
