When we hear someone saying they own a cape, an image of that person in spandex as a superhero immediately comes to our mind (don´t tell me you don´t). But when it comes to fashion, a cape is a piece that has been rocking the runways, red carpets and the streets from some time now. Celebrities have been wearing long capes with their red carpet dresses, the runways have showed us more than one style of cape, and Burberry Prorsum, under the direction of the clever Christopher Bailey, showed us how to pull off this amazing piece on the streets since more than a year ago. This piece is going nowhere.
A cape is a versatile and incredibly stylish piece. Now that fall is so close, and with some cold days already here, a cape may be your best purchase right now. You can use it with some high waisted shorts or skirt with a pair of over the knee boots, or with some pants and an amazing stilettos; the idea is to leave the attention to the cape thanks to the nature of design, which immediately takes all the attention.
Capes are the new jackets, but much more fun. If you like feeling like you are about to go on a duel, or a character in a fairy tale (or you let the imaginary scenarios and just like the piece), a cape is a piece that will elevate any outfit. As this is such a statement piece, is better to get one without bold colors or very extravagant prints. A plain piece, or with a geometric pattern would be the best choice. I love this cape/poncho, and I won’t resist to get different ones, and you?
