Generally, the conversation around capes brings at least one person that ﬁ nds the look complicated – restrictive movement or maybe too much fabric. The look for this season gives no reasons to complain: The cape is back and it’s more practical and more stylish than ever! Every, and we do mean every, runway style is showcased this season with either cropped or slits as sleeves. This leaves easy access to carry bags, groceries and more without trying to manage it with poise underneath the fabric.

Another indisputable fashion plus of the cape: You can wear the thickest sweater underneath or the ﬁnest silk and the look can adjust effortlessly and without wrinkles. The cape style is enviably warm and cosy, yet it is also very ladylike – this is, in part, due to the on-trend colors of camel, cognac and winter white.
The rounded yoke neckline contours to the soft drape of the cape – a shape that is relaxed and also beautifully feminine.
This cape worn over a simple and sophisticated dress like this one really takes the look to the next level while keeping you warm! Whether you are on your way to a dinner date, business meeting, or cocktail hour with friends, this look has you covered.
The great thing about this cape is its shorter hemline and sleeves so your outfit underneath can shine through! This vibrant wrap blouse with bows at the sleeves stylishly appear out from the cape while the printed skirt adds some length and fun to the look. You then of course need a matching purse to complete the outfit!
