Dressing for cold weather is all about finding the right balance between comfort and style, and a poncho is a great way to keep warm without sacrificing your look.
But if you don’t feel like shelling out for a brand-new piece, follow these tips for turning a blanket into a versatile and cozy fashion statement (that also makes for a great gift!).
- Fold the blanket in half lengthwise, and cut a slit along the fold, about halfway across.
- Sew the edges of the blanket shut.
- Proudly wear your new poncho!
