Women's Ponchos and Ruanas
When it comes to layering up, our ponchos and ruanas are the perfect choice. They're lightweight enough to work as a cover-up and cozy enough for the cooler months. Available in an array of detailed and distinctive designs, they'll add some inspired pep to your wardrobe.
Our collection of ponchos and ruanas pays tribute to where it all began. Today, Chico's is known for creating flattering and unique clothing, but our boutique began as a Mexican folk art store. This collection of ponchos and ruanas draws upon our history and is a homage to traditions from South America. We've added our own unique spin to these traditional pieces. Expect subtle details such as ruffles, intricate embroidery and delicate fringing as well as more practical touches such as waterproof finishes. Bold colors, encapsulating prints and elegant touches bring a contemporary twist of sophistication to this collection.
We use an array of modern fabrics to bring a new update to a classic look. Choose from lightweight materials like silk and mesh for the ultimate summertime cover-up — simply throw it on over a plain white tee and jean shorts for beach-to-bar style. We also have designs made from linen: a natural fabric which is breathable and crisp, lending a slightly more formal expression to this casual shape.
Our ponchos and ruanas come in a wide array of designs to suit any aesthetic. Keep it subtle with a plain piece in black, white or gray. Understated prints like chevron stripes in neutral hues add a pop of interest to formal outfits, and are versatile enough to team with office ensembles. For something more striking, our printed pieces feature bold multicolor florals and animal prints. Sheer fabrics are delicately embroidered, while burnout details add texture to soft cotton pieces. Due to the floaty shape, we love how they look with slim-fit pants. Team with jeggings and ankle boots for the ultimate trans-seasonal look.
Add some of these light layering pieces to your wardrobe and get ready to hear "where did you get that?" over and over.
