Style Advice of the Week

If you are looking for a way to stay fun and fashionable in the cold weather, cape coats are the way to go. Cape coats were first seen predominantly in the 19th century and ever since then have been in and out of the fashion scene. There’s a reason they have stayed in fashion for so long, who can resist this great accessory that provides such a romantic look?

Cape coats sit on you perfectly so you never have to worry about them hugging all the wrong places. They provide comfort, which is very important for students who are running around trying to get things done but still want that extra style. These cape coats are a great way to break out of the same routine we have going on every fall.

The most important thing to know about owning a cape is to be comfortable with adding some bulk to your upper body. With that being said, to rock this very stylish accessory, you should wear form fitting or narrow bottoms with your cape. This balances out your outfit and makes the cape work well with your body type.

Our Fashionista shows us exactly how to rock a cape; she keeps it simple by wearing black leggings underneath. Having some texture on her cape adds volume to the outfit.

Make your shoes stand out like our Fashionista does with her leopard print flats, both comfortable and stylish. This adds some color to her all black outfit. I love animal prints right now, so you could also try zebra print flats if you’re feeling a little fun — and you definitely should feel a little fun.

Tired of rocking boring coats? Then the cape coat is for you. With comfort, style and a whole lot of wiggle room; let the cape add a touch of elegance and glamour to your wardrobe.
