There are so many ways to style this poncho. I decided to use patriotic colors for the summer holidays and paired with cut offs and my swim suit. It could be worn over a tank, with a bralette, or just as a swim suit cover. I used cotton DK but acrylic DK would work fine, too. You might not want to get it wet, though.
