I am a huge believe in wardrobe staples. Those things that not only define your personal style, but that you also absolutely can’t live without. That being said, a solid black cape (or any cape for that matter) has been a quintessential part of my winter wardrobe since late 2006, when I stumbled upon the find of all finds at a semi random but much less desirable coat store just south of Times Square. I was attending FIT at the time, so the $50 I spend was seriously committing to the look.
Lucky for us, the past few seasons have bestowed upon us a serious number of caped creations, from traditional, to unexpected, short, long and the list goes on.
Why we love the cape: Granted, the cape is not the warmest of creations however it is definitely one of the trendiest. Always the perfect complement to any outfit!
- The perfect last layer to polish off the perfect look
- Works best with skinny trousers or tights
- The perfect statement piece for those thoughtless fashion moments
- Say bye bye to those dreaded “Fat Days”
