Delightful details create a sweet look in this caftan style poncho. Complete with chevron pointelle borders across the top and bottom.  The Malibu Poncho is finished with an overlock hem at the sides that ruffle. Layer over a tank or camisole, or use as a beach cover up!  Wear it straight across or switch it to the side with the seam coming down the front for a totally different look and length.  This poncho is Bohemian fashion at its best.  Our model is a size 6 and yet the generous sizing on this allows gorgeous goddesses to enjoy also, up to a size 2X.  Fabulous worn over swimsuits and skinny jeans alike!
