FOUR GREAT CAPE STYLES TO WEAR RIGHT NOW

The cape, one of our all-time favorite fall trends, just so happens to be perfect for transitional fall weather.

Classiccape2

STRUCTURED/CLASSIC

Chic and polished, this dramatic style makes any outfit unforgettable—work or play.

Cropcape

CROPPED

Less of a commitment than longer styles, these short versions look amazing with mini skirts or leather pants.

Acnecape

SPORTY

Don’t let the sporty details fool you; these capes aren’t made for the gym alone.

Blanketcape

BLANKET

Burberry may have stoked the flames with its sold-out monogrammable version, but we love this cozy iteration for the weekend.

HEAD TO TOE CASUAL LOOK

Showers in the forecast and mild temperatures call for a short-sleeved trench cape.

A cape is an accent piece, so let it do all the talking. The general rule of thumb is to keep the rest of your outfit pared down and chic. Capes tend to be voluminous and look best with slim-fitting, streamlined pieces underneath. Try a simple combination of dark skinny jeans and a white tie-neck blouse. As temperatures drop, substitute a long-sleeved top. We love the idea of pairing this tongue-in-cheek, cropped trench cape with refined, menswear-inspired add-ons like metallic tipped brogues. For heavier showers, try a patent-effect rain bootie for a polished look.

IF YOU COULD ONLY BUY JUST ONE PIECE

As fall begins we’re all about investment pieces. But this season we’re skipping the urge to buy flats that are too precious to wear in the lousy weather and too uncomfortable to wear every day. Instead we’re opting for practical footwear. Our first choice is the “not-so-sporty” Irini slip-on sneaker by Loeffler Randall. Though we were on the fence about the studs and tiger stripe embellishments when we spotted them at Barneys, we tried them on and we couldn’t resist buying a pair. They add just the right dash of practical edge our fall wardrobe needs.
