Good afternoon everyone and happy Friday. So far my day has consisted of putting up the Christmas tree, shopping, admin work and now I am finally getting round to writing this post. Today’s post is about Capes, I adore wearing them, so I thought I would pick some of my favourite ones. Why not take a scroll down and have a look. Do let me know if any of them catch your eye!
Right let us begin with my cape which is from a label called Shahini Fakhourie. The founder is based in Miami Florida, her design process begins with one central idea. Always allowing form and function to guide the journey. This cape comes with a two way zipper and a back patch pocket detail. So when it comes to styling a cape one thing to keep in mind is that it will add volume to the upper body. Therefore go for some form fitting bottoms like skinny trousers, jeans or pencil skirts. Here I am wearing a pair of tailored trousers to balance out my shape. The trousers that I am wearing are from the H&M AW20 Studio Collection.
For those of you who are on the petite size be careful not to get a cape that is too heavy or oversized. I opted to style my cape with my linen shirt from Zara, I absolutely adore the peter pan collar and thought it be great to layer this under the cape. As for my shoes I went for my leopard print sock boots from Public Desire to add a little more drama. My bag is from Taylor Yates and to complete my look, yes I know it’s those Illesteva Cat-Eye sunglasses again!
DRESS FOR THE OCCASION
So whether you are heading out for brunch or just running some errands, capes are very versatile to incorporate into you daily outfits. If it’s a formal setting go for single tone capes as they will look chic and put together. Now if it’s a casual look then you can play around with patterns and bold colours should you choose to.
STYLE WITH JEANS AND TROUSERS
As I mentioned earlier, the cape will create volume, therefore go for skinny jeans and tailored trousers preferably in a darker tone. Faux leather trousers will also work perfectly well, teamed with knee high boots. One other way I like to style a cape is with some cream coloured skinny trousers tucked into a pair of riding style knee high boots. Then I add a black roll neck jumper and finally wear a camel coloured cape on top to finish off the outfit!
