Cape Trend

A cape is a great way to add elegance and stylish retro vibe to your fall wardrobe. Perfect for transition periods (from warm to cool), not that practical (unless you can find a cape with splits for moving your arms), but undeniably a striking outerwear for you who wants to have fun with silhouettes this season!

How to wear it:


  • Avoid the costumey look, instead, go for capes in neutral, basic colors such as black/gray, cream/white and browns for maximized versatility.

  • For a minimal, utility look keep your outfit colors tonal (or ‘monochromatic’ as described in the outfit-ideas section). It also helps downplay the look of the cape.

  • Emphasize the shape of the cape by wearing slim fitted pants. However, if you're have an inverted triangle body shape you might want to balance it out with bootcut pants or a pair of boots with stylish details (buckles, lace, etc.)


Not sure if it will suit your body type? Not sure what clothes to wear it with?
