Everyone’s adore capes and I know why! They look tremendously chic and elegant. It feels like the 1970’s fashion is back. You know, fashion is a cyclical thing where trends come back every 10 years with just a slight change in details. This year they are uber-polished, casual, dramatic and somewhat boho chic. In the past year’s capes were used by girls for casual walks, but nowadays we see capes on businesswomen, editors, designers and other ladies. These outerwear pieces can be worn in different ways, all depends on the cape’s design. Short capes are the easiest styles in terms of wearing, as they can be mixed and matched with pretty much anything from your closet. They look awesome with jeans, suits trousers, stilettos, and casual boots. The mid-length capes are great for creating polished looks, think of a sexy LBD or tight dress with heels and statement jewelry worn under the cape. You can also use a pencil skirt with a lightweight blouse to underline your elegance during office hours.
