Tie one on - an updated poncho

Señor Tyrone´s version of the South American poncho is a more versatile unisex, one-size-fits-all garment - sort of a cross between a cape and a scarf (no slipping your head through a slit in the middle of the material) that can be worn draped free-flowing around the shoulders, gathered in close at the chest for maximum warmth, crossed or tied and swept over one or both shoulders, or folded into a rectangle and draped over one shoulder as a fashion accessory. The machine-washable wrap comes in 9 colors and two patterns. Señor Tyrone Poncho Wrap in classic or peacock design is $125 at www.senortyrone.com.

The designers at Señor Tyrone have done some tinkering and tailoring with the classic South American poncho to come up with a more versatile unisex, one-size-fits-all version of the garment - although they have left intact the traditional knotted fringes along the hem. Made from vegan and hypoallergenic loomed acrylic yarn, this expansive poncho-esque cover-up looks like a cross between a cape and a scarf (no slipping your head through a slit in the middle of the material), that can be worn draped free-flowing around the shoulders, gathered in close at the chest for maximum warmth, crossed or tied and swept over one or both shoulders, or folded into a rectangle and draped over one shoulder as a fashion accessory. The lightweight, machine-washable wrap comes in 9 colors, from cream to pink, teal, or black, and two patterns. The Classic model has wide, but subtle, spiral and scallop designs woven along the hem at the back and front sides. The bolder Peacock model has more dramatic geometric patterns and curves at the hem, and four full-feathered (though monotone) peacocks woven across the back and sides of the wrap. The poncho folds into a not-bulky square and stashes in an included drawstring pouch for travel.
