Caped Crusader: How to wear the trend this fall

An alternative to a trusty leather jacket or hunting parka can be a sturdy cape in wool or heavy cotton. Here are my choices and ways to style this classic beauty. 

Capes

Mango, $130 // MM6 by Maison Martin Margiela, $227 // Sofie D’hoore, $785 // DKNY, $295

Make your bright cape the star by pairing with black and gray, props for looking like a chicer version of Little Red Riding Hood.

Etsy, $189

Or try pairing your cape with a statement necklace that says “I like to have fun, but in a fancy way.”

A classic black cape with tall black riding boots and a pop of cream will never go out of style. Plus black leather riding gloves will make you look like a badass.

Take a cue from Olivia Palermo’s book and pair your cape with denim and chambray. Cue the dollar bills and fashion spreads.

Tell anyone who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day to go away, but with warm colors and a leopard print scarf.

Fun fact: Capes are basically like wearing blankets, but more fashionable.

Get a hooded cape so people mistake you for a wizard.
