STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Capes Aren't Just For Superheroes

When shopping online and in stores the past few months, I found a very noticeable amount of capes and ponchos on the market! It definitely caught my attention because the trend could be spread across all different types of garments. I think they are so sophisticated and can be worn so many different ways! I’ve seen many cocktail dresses with adorable caped shoulders that would be perfect for a night on the town. The trend is also perfect for the wintertime because they are very comfortable and it’s almost like you’re wearing a blanket as a part of your outfit!

So, if it’s chilly out and you are feeling like wearing a nice little poncho or cape to keep warm, there’s a few things to think about before stepping out in your new garment. Because capes are usually long or have a lot of drape, I personally wouldn’t wear other baggy clothing along with it. Instead of drowning in a lot of fabric try making the cape a statement to the complementing pants, shoes, etc. Wear the clothes, don’t let the clothes wear you!

This Fashionista pulled together a lovely ensemble that is casual, comfortable yet super trendy! The light wash skinny jeans with the tan boots really make the dark colors on top stand out. Not to mention a bold statement necklace to pull the outfit together! Perfect everyday fall and winter look! This Fashionista found her cape and jeans at the store Windsor which is always up to date with the latest trends, their website is definitely worth checking out if you haven’t shopped there already.
