Like an unstoppable horror movie beast, the poncho has crawled back out of its fashion grave. And like a B-movie monster it has now returned meshed together with the corpses of other fashion trends.
Behold the "parka cape" which features all the bulk of a parka with none of the warmth and a long tail to get stuck in things.
Then there's the slicker-parka-cape.
Which then mutates into the poncho-slicker-parka-cape.
There's also an evening poncho-cape when you still want to feel really chilly but also have an extremely difficult time picking things up and getting in and out of cars.
These girls all need to remember the sage advice of Edna Mode. No capes!
