It may be the accessory of choice for superheros, but this Fall/Winter the cape is the super chic and versatile item in your wardrobe. From classic, elegant draping, to comfortable, casual knits, a cape is a great alternative for outerwear that adds a little flair. This season, designers are even incorporating trends such as military-inspired tailoring, Fair Isle patterns and chunky cable-knits. And if you find yourself hesitant to go a traditional cape silhouette, companies such as Zara, Nasty Gal and ASOS offer some more moderate, modern options.
How to wear it: Since a cape hangs freely off the shoulders, the loose shape is best flattered by your favorite pair of jeggings/skinny jeans or skirt and tights, with a fierce pair of boots, ankle or OTK.
