Nostalgia is back 

After the crocheted halter tops and animal-print platform sandals that heated up the fashion world this past summer, can the fall duds ever match up? Yes, they can. Old Navy, one of America’s favorite casual outfitters, has added a funky and fringed all-suede poncho to its women’s clothing line. It doesn’t get much more retro than this. This fashion flashback definitely makes a statement, even if it will get as soggy as a corn flake in all the rain we’ve been enjoying in Michigan this fall. The poncho comes in classic rattan brown and is 100 percent leather with a full polyester lining. It ties at the vent near the neck and falls to the elbow and the hip. Get it for $99 at Old Navy's Web site or at an Old Navy store.
