Microtrend Monday: Good News, Betty Suarez, Ponchos Have Become Cool Again

Here at Who What Wear UK, we always strive to tell you about the next big trends ahead of time. That's why we created Microtrend Monday, your weekly alert to let you know the items and styling tricks that are suddenly taking off.

If you say the word poncho in fashion circles, it will typically make you think of Betty's first day at Mode Magazine in Ugly Betty when she is slated for her jazzy poncho. But if Betty were to attend fashion month this season, she'd be in good company, as we have noticed that the poncho is suddenly having a moment. Thanks to brands such as Chloé, Burberry and Monse, the street style crowd have been wearing sweeping capes and blankets, and the general rule here is the more dramatic, the better. Think rainbow prints, oversized silhouettes and playful embellishments. Keep scrolling to see how to style the poncho now, and shop our edit of the best around.
