It’s that time of the year when you have to hide under layers of clothing once again. Fortunately, you no longer have to make-do with just jackets, trench coats and blazers. A revolutionary fashion idea for this cold weather is the cape, which you can style well with a handful of clothes and accessories. Here are some concepts on how to wear cape modishly.
Fit is Important
Capes can be very loose, so the best way to balance the look is to wear form-fitting clothes. Snug sweaters, wool leggings and skinny jeans are just some of the items that can add shape to the loose silhouette of the cape.
Top it with a Turtleneck
The turtleneck is an essential part for autumn and winter layering. At the same time, it is a great piece to wear with your cape, especially for styles that expose the arms.
Leave it Open
It might be cold outside, but for all intents and purposes, leave your cape open! This will give you the opportunity to show the fabulous attire you have underneath.
And when it gets nippy, it does not necessarily mean that you should leave it open. Belting it up can stop the cold from entering – whilst showing most of your trendy ensemble.
Bring out the Long Gloves
Short gloves might be the norm, but long gloves work best with capes. Not only is it fashionable, it is recommended for cape styles that reveal the arms (lest you want to freeze outside!)
Protect your head from the elements and look stunning all at the same time by topping your look with a haute hat. Whatever style it might be, it can be the chic cherry on top of your trendy cape.
Boots are the Best
Capes and knee-high boots are like Burger and Fries – they just go well together! With this pairing, you can look like a fashion model, fresh from the runway.
Go with a Top-Handle Bag
Because of the unique design of capes, they can restrict you from donning your favorite shoulder bags. Although this is the case, you can go around town with all of your important items by carrying a stylish top-handle bag.
A cape might be hard to work with, but with the right styling, it can make you look glamorous! Go ahead, hit the streets in a chic cape!
