We should address first things first: a swoncho is a half sweater, half poncho creation. Basically, you get the breeziness and shape of a poncho without it being quite so hot. And this swoncho is the perfect transition between warmer weather and the colder months, or for when it’s hot out but the office is chilly. This intermediate pattern was a favorite in 2019, but we’re pretty sure you’ll still like it today. This loose, summery look is sure to get you lots of compliments, or the award for “best gift” from a girl friend.
