STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Es(cape) Cold Weather

January 28th, 2015 at 2:00am

This leopard print cape is the perfect way to stay stylish and warm in this cool January weather. This Fashionista caught my eye on campus, not only because I am drawn to anything and everything in leopard print, but also because capes are all the rage right now. They are currently being seen on so many women in different patterns and colors with a variety of different decorative details.

The cape is the perfect accessory because it keeps you warm and cozy, is super stylish and is like wearing a blanket! What more could you ask for in a garment? Capes typically have no defined sleeves and are worn over the shoulders and drape down. This particular cape is a very simple style. It features a leopard pattern with a simple black faux leather trim. This Fashionista has paired her cape with the ever popular, monochromatic, black T-shirt, leggings and boots. However, you can find them being worn over skinny jeans, dresses and skirts. They are being worn with a variety of outfits.

Capes have been popular on the runway as well. You can see many of them featured here in the Burberry Prorsum fall 2014 ready-to wear collection, here in the Saint Laurent fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection and here in the alice + olivia pre-fall 2015 collection. They can be found in many other runway shows as well.
