13 Excellent Ponchos, Capes, & Wraps For Days When You Want To Wear A Blanket As Clothes

You're wildest style dreams have officially come true: It is now acceptable to wear blankets in public! Well, sort of. Capes, ponchos, and wraps are all the rage, and they couldn't look more comfortable. With their soft textures and sizable shape, ponchos are a must-have for those seeking a bit of comfort this fall. From runway to street style, these oversized wraps have been everywhere this season, and it's no wonder why people are loving them. They're essentially large, comfy blankets!

Layer the poncho over a thin turtleneck, or wrap it over a bulky coat for extra warmth. Fashion forward divas and lazy girls alike can rejoice in this on-trend outerwear.
