So, I love the look of ponchos. There are two I am really smitten with from Ralph Lauren (I am on the iPad so I cann't Use Finds).

They seem warm, comfortable, and on trend. A bit arty for my classic self, but the Arab ones are a bit more streamlined and without fringe. No idea how they would work in an office, environment where I need to work on the computer. Also, not sure how they would work on my average height larger sized body. The models aren't even close to a reasonable gauge for me.

Any of you taken the plunge on a poncho? Thoughts?

Edit: here are the two I was eyeing up. Not sure either would go under a full winter coat.
