Nothing adds drama to an outfit quite like a cape. Whether you prefer an elegant vintage look, or something laidback and friendly, capes and cloaks have an unexpected, theatrical quality that makes them exciting. Capes are such a fabulous and versatile item for women and making a strong comeback this fall.
This is all thanks to the return of capes to the catwalks, as a sophisticated alternative to the statement coat. Wearing a cape enhances any women's figure.
Donning a cape with a great pair of boots and skinny jean is a fabulous look. Also try a skinny black pant with a bootie.
We love this black and white cape by Tracy Reese, $468.00 available at One Brilliant.
Don't be afraid to wear a wrap or cape in lieu of a chunky sweater. It will look great with a knit dress, skirt and or jean and also more stylish.
We love this cashmere wrap by Minnie Rose, $248.00 available at One Brilliant.
Another really cool thing to do with a cape is to find a fabulous pin or great button for an alternative closure, this will really set off your cape. Belting is also very chic and stylish when worn with a cape.
Capes are one of the coolest and most often-overlooked garments you can wear.
