This trend is all about comfort with a hint of glamour and drama. Designers have fused capes with other trends - camel, equestrian, military, etc. - so whatever style you are looking for, you can probably find.
I won't wax poetic about them too much because I think it's pretty obvious I love the look! Wear ponchos and capes with skinny jeans, jeggings, or leggings to balance out the volume of the top, or belt drapey sweaters to create a silhouette. I imagine wearing my H&M camel-colored poncho, pictured below, with skinny jeans, over the knee suede boots and large tortoise-framed sunglasses.
Here are some of my favorite poncho-style sweaters:
|Joie Soft Celia Cable-Knit Sweater, available at Cusp: $158|
|T by Alexander Wang poncho, available at Net-A-Porter: $275|
|H&M poncho, also available in grey: $19.95|
|Old Navy marled cable-knit cape: $39.50|
And now that it's starting to get chilly, we can think more about outerwear. I think cape-style coats look so luxurious and fun. I'm on the hunt for my perfect cape, but here are some I love in the meantime.
|ASOS hooded military cape: $117.95|
|Alice by Temperley Charlie crepe coat, available at Net-A-Porter: $595|
|Halston Heritage long cape, available at Neiman Marcus: $495|
|Diane von Furstenberg wool cape jacket, available at Net-A-Porter: $395|
And in a dream world...
|Ann Demeulemeester double-breasted cape coat, available at Saks: $2350|
|Ralph Lauren Dunlop shearling-trim cape: $1498|
I'm feeling all warm and toasty just looking at these!
