First, we were welcoming back the vest back, and now we're making room for another re-emerging fashion trend -- the poncho.

As winter sets in, you may find yourself spotting more of these draped, cloak-like garments in the window of your favourite store. But perhaps you're thinking, what's the best way to style this item?

With a range of ponchos of their own, Trenery has stepped in with some style suggestions. Find the perfect poncho to fit your personality.

"The wide range of designs and free sizing works for all body types, with a generous silhouette that adds a level of drama to every look. You can never go wrong with adding the versatile poncho to your winter wardrobe," the Trenery team explains.

Our nod to the fisherman's classic, with a distinctly feminine twist. Depicting a rope-like design, this poncho is designed with an elegant cowl neckline and lightly flared sleeve.

Style notes: For a sophisticated day look, subvert the heritage-feel knit with something of-the-moment, like a buttery leather trouser or skirt. Designed around the luxury of timeless, modern simplicity, Trenery is of the moment, yet enduring, connecting our clean and concise sense of style with a relaxed Australian spirit.
