I was in Old Navy a couple of weeks ago and I was happy to see that ponchos are back. About 5 years ago I bought 2 of them. I saw Martha Stewart wearing one when she was released from prison and I thought it was so cute. It's something easy to wear when you don't want to wear a coat or jacket. Just throw it on over your clothes and go. It will keep you warm on cool days. I like to wear mine with skinny jeans and boots.
