Fall 2011 poncho looks from Rag & Bone, DKNY, and Chloé

It's not quite jacket weather but our bare shoulders are getting the chills. Perhaps it's wishful thinking that fall's cool weather is approaching (and along with it, a chic new wardrobe). Instead of donning our leather and sweating away, we're pining for the season's cape and poncho trend. From polished to boho, the look is effortless yet so very cool. Chloé's colorful patchwork blanket touches upon the Southwest trend. DKNY opted for an office-appropriate look—who needs a boyfriend's blazer? Rag & Bone was all fringe and fun with their marching band themed look. Feeling the itch to buy a poncho now? Us too. Which is why we rounded up six looks in stores now. Cover up and look sexy while doing so.
