Fall calls for comfy, oversized layers and I just cannot get enough! Capes, especially, are such an easy and chic way to dress up any outfit. They have become so popular this season that you cannot walk into your favorite store and not find countless capes hanging on the racks.

As a Providence College student, this Fashionista knows exactly how strange the weather in Rhode Island can be. The temperature around this time can really fluctuate between rather warm and very frigid. However, a cape is the perfect statement piece that is easy to take on or off depending on the temperature changes.

A cape is the perfect statement piece for so many reasons. First, it is undeniably so comfortable! Second, you can wear it for a casual day or to a fancy dinner. And third, it can be the perfect piece to dress up a plain outfit.

This Fashionista embodies exactly what it means to look comfortable and chic on her way to class. This Fashionista paired her Ralph Lauren cape (similar here), with adorable booties (similar here). While you can always wear a cape to dress up a plain outfit, this Fashionista’s ensemble is still a great outfit for any day of the week! She matches her cape with a Free People shirt as well as black jeans from my favorite store, Madewell.

This Fashionista’s outfit is a perfect everyday look that anyone can copy! Capes this season come in all different patterns and colors: black, embroidered, striped—you really cannot go wrong!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Dressing cute for class is still possible with the colder weather! A cape is the perfect example of a simple piece that is automatically chic and comfortable, but only takes two seconds to put on.”
