Super Trend to Try: Capes

By  December 07, 2012

This season, we’d like our fashionista followers to consider a cape rather than a coat. No, not your superhero type of cape, but rather the romantic draped version we would have been custom to seeing in the 1900s. This type of outerwear is  cute, chic, and less expected than your regular old jacket. It’s a dressier alternative too, so make sure to style it appropriately. Smart Mom Style reminds us that the “volume on top will need to be balanced by more form-fitting items like a pencil skirt or skinny jeans.” Use the outfit Chitown Fashionista put together as an example. Those oxblood leather leggings are the perfect pop for under the camel colored fur lined cape. And the cap toe pumps? Swoonworthy.
