If you know me, you know that fall is my absolute favorite season to dress for. Now that fall is in full force, it is time to bring out all your go-to fall pieces. Besides my favorite jeans and sweaters, there is one piece this fall I cannot live without and that is my lightweight, knit cape, much like the one this Fashionista is sporting here.

This black and gray knit cape is a perfect everyday piece that you will not want to live without. Although it is nice and lightweight, it is also very warm, which comes in handy when the weather begins to drop at night. It is also the perfect layering piece to put on over a full outfit to add some warmth, or to throw on over a simple T-shirt and jeans, creating an effortless, chic look, while remaining totally comfortable.

This Fashionista paired her cape with a simple black tank top, a pair of medium wash jeans and an adorable pair of heeled booties. This look is perfect for everyday, whether you are running errands or off to class. Not only do you look fabulous and feel comfy, but you save so much time when getting ready due to how easy it is to throw on of these capes. I specifically like printed capes, like the plaid print shown on this Fashionista because it adds a little more flare to your look. However, I also have seen some solid colored capes in beautiful fall hues such as maroon and olive green that are just as stunning. You simply cannot go wrong with these fall capes.

If I could recommend any one item to add to your fall wardrobe this season it would be some kind of knitted cape. This piece will shake up your fall wardrobe from your standard outwear collection filled with jackets and vests, to add a new twist. These capes are stylish, comfortable and timeless, making them the perfect staple piece.

How To: For an everyday look, pair your cape over a basic T-shirt and a pair of leggings or jeans. For a night on the town try a leather skirt with a simple black tank and layer your cape on over top to stay warm, while still looking fabulous.
