“I like your…what exactly is that? A cloak?” “Hey Sherlock Holmes!” These are some of the comments I’ve received while out and about in my favorite (reemerging) fall/winter trend — the cape.
Capes aren’t for superheroes alone. This retro-chic coat is for the lady who wants to put a touch of elegance in her wardrobe or just enjoys the whimsical look & feel of the cape.
A cape made from lightweight fabrics can function as a casual jacket, while heavy wool & fleece capes are alternatives to standard winter coats. No worries…I know that it’s cold, so I definitely don’t really leave my arms bare under the cape.
While driving in a bulky coat is generally uncomfortable, it can be even more awkward with some capes. I suggest that you take off your cape while driving or push the “sleeves” up to allow for more mobility. Besides that, you’re good to go.
