Looking to give your outerwear collection a new lease of life? Most people’s’ wardrobes include an anorak, a parka and the essential wool overcoat; must-haves for anyones winter wardrobe. But if you really want to turn heads this season, a cape is how to do it!
The cape use to be the must-have coat back in the day, with strident midwives & scottish widows as well as iconic figures such as Sherlock Holmes & Little Red Riding Hood featuring their statement cape. As time has gone on however, capes popularity has faded in to the background… NOT THIS SEASON! Designers such as Ralph Lauren, Ellie Saab & Hedi Slimane showcased their heart stopping capes at the AW14 runway; featuring sumptuous cashmere, blood stained palettes, fur detailing and floor sweeping lengths.
This season there is a cape for everyone from cropped to capelet, voluminous to tailored, loud reds to soft lilacs, even if you’re the pickiest shopper you’re sure to find one you love! If you opt for the voluminous ensemble, team with a pencil skirt or skinny jeans to counterbalance. When it comes to the tailored cape, a pair of knee high boots and a mini never goes amiss!
