Currently Coveting: Capes

Do you ever look at the street style section of The New York Times and wish you were in it?  Well don one of these fabulous capes and you very well could be!  I think every fall, whether they are in style or not, capes land on my currently coveting list, and this season is no exception.  When it comes to cold weathered seasons, outerwear is a key element for your daily style.  It is the first thing people see and, if you are spending most of your time outside, it could be the only thing they see.  You want your outerwear to make a statement, be unique, and keep you warm.  A cape checks all of these boxes because it is chic, mysterious, and an alluring alternative to a coat.  If you want to be on pointe with today’s trends, pair your cape with wide leg pants or a mini skirt (see last week’s post).  If you want to keep it classic, wear a classic pencil skirt or a sheath dress.  Regardless, keep proportions in mind so that you look fabulous not frumpy.  If you have a sleeveless dress and you’re afraid you won’t be warm enough, throw a light turtleneck under it to keep your arms covered.  I hope you are as excited to wear a cape this season as much as I am.  See below which capes I am currently coveting, and maybe you will find the cape of your dreams.
