Tayberry has launched a new poncho.

The company says the new poncho is “perfect” for the autumn weather, “helping to keep wearers dry during an unexpected shower”.

The new showerproof ponchos have a foldaway design so they fit easily into a pocket or bag.

They feature a hood and zip through half placket.

“The new Lucy and Jessica Ponchos are from our autumn/winter 13 collection and are ideal for the changeable British weather,” said Susan Kelly, senior designer at Tayberry.

“The Lucy Poncho features our exclusive Sprig pattern for the new season whereas Jessica is available in Ink. Both are great to have in a glove compartment, lorry living or bag. They go over anything thanks to their loose design and can also be used to help keep tops clean.”

Lucy and Jessica Ponchos are available in sizes S-XXL and cost £20.
