- The Cape, which is more of a coat style with arm holes,
- The Blanket Wrap, which is really a huge scarf to wrap around yourself,
- and the Poncho, which makes you think Mexican bandit, but essentially means a single large sheet of fabric with an opening in the center for the head.
I have seen these styled in the shops, and online, with wide leg trousers and full skirts, but I think to avoid looking too billowy, they are best worn with skinny jeans/trousers or leggings/jeggings or a straight pencil skirt. If you want to add definition to your waist then try a skinny belt over the top to accentuate your middle.
