The Cape Trend
The cape trend is modern, chic and stylish. By definition a cape is a sleeveless outer garment that fastens at the neck and may have a hood. Capes are festive, and magical. They come in a variety of lengths and fabrics. Capes are more versatile than coats and are perfect transitional pieces going into new seasons. They work well when worn over a jacket or layers. They look stylish with slim silhouettes that offset the cape’s volume. Slim pants or jeans with tights and boots look very stylish with capes.
