I’ve had this camel coloured cape in my wardrobe for a few years now and every winter I bring it out and completely fall in love with it all over again! The cape is definitely one of my favourite styles of coat, however there are a few rules when it comes to how to wear a cape…
1. Streamline the rest of your outfit
Since the cape will billow, keep the rest of your outfit closely fitted to the body. Skinny jeans matched with a tight sweater works well.
2. Buy a cape in a good material
Because your cape will have gaps in the side, you want your cape to be of a good quality of material so you are still kept relatively warm through winter. Capes that are 100% wool or cashmere are best.
3. Size is key
Do not buy a cape that looks like it has swallowed you whole, it is definitely not one size fits all! Make sure that the cape is proportionate to your height and fits well.
