How To Style A Cape Coat


A cape can be the superhero of your fall wardrobe, working relentlessly to save your office, weekend, and even after-hours looks from mundane territory. Of course, it’s all in the way you style the key piece. Cape coats are fun, exciting and versatile.

Cape coats are the best option to polish a casual outfit. A printed button-down blouse and dark denim jeans will be hugely trendy with a neutral-toned cape over your shoulders. Or try loosening up further, with a more relaxed cape coat style decorated with a little fur. Team it with jean short and a corset or nice baggy sweater. Sunglasses and a pretty shawl provide just the right upbeat touch. When working with so much material, the key is to keep the items underneath simple and structured.

A cape coat with an elegant shape is best for high-profile gatherings or a night on the town. You can layer it up with a cardigan over a chic form-fitting, long sleeved blouse in a complimentary color. Slip into black skinny jeans and trendy ankle boots to complete your fabulous winter look. If you’re a woman (just like myself) who considers dresses a wardrobe staple, the cape coat will heighten its charm. Find one with a clean and modish look; its well-cut silhouette gives an additional flamboyance to your striking dress. You can go absolutely flirty and cute with this look, by pairing a vibrant cape coat with an attractive simple-cut dress. What are your tips on styling a cape coat?
