Takes the Cape

It’s easy to feel super chic, super sophisticated, super strong, ummm…just plain SUPER when you’re wearing a cape. When that cape has military structure and sweet scalloped detail, it is the easiest. Capes come in so many forms from ponchos to wraps to shawls (what we called them when I was a little girl) from long to short and from tailored to oversized. They are like fine wrapping that adds sparkle to an outfit.

I chose this tailored cape to cover a silk cream mini dress. The dress was ultra-feminine (and I love my feminine clothing), but I wanted to add a little structure with the military cut and bold gold buttons. This added instant structure as well as elegance to my look.  Needless to say, I was delighted.  So don’t forget that no matter what you’re wearing underneath, a cape can always accessorize an outfit, just like nice packaging on a gift. Now do yourself a favor, if you haven’t already (or if you need more) and gift yourself a cape while it’s still cool/cold out there. You can thank me later in the comments section.

Today’s pick: navy scalloped double-breasted cape with a cream silk ruffle, tie-neck mini dress paired with taupe OTK suede boots and a gold leather handbag.

Cape: Neiman Marcus (similar here and here); cream tie-neck mini dress (Red Valentino sold out, similar here); OTK boots: Steve Madden); Bag: Chanel (similar here); Accessories: Chanel
