Fall 2017 Trend | Capes


Happy Friday! You don’t have to be a superhero, but you can definitely feel like one with one of this Fall’s latest trends: capes ➳

Ever since I was a little girl, Madeline has been my favorite children’s book, especially due to the adorable outfits, including the blue cape. Flash forward to my teenage years being introduced to comic books, I naturally became attracted to a variety of superhero capes. Today, capes have grown up and gotten a dramatic, glamorous makeover. There are capes, and then there are the revamped capes that have been making a huge statement at fashion week this year.

Capes are a great piece to include in your wardrobe, as they can instantly transform an otherwise simple look into something eye-catching and fun; and can be worn both day and night, for work or play. There are a number of ways to wear one, too, whether in the form of a dress, a long standalone cape, a shorter piece paired with a skirt, shorts, or jeans, or a capelet that adorns the top half of your look. Take some inspiration from these runway looks, and shop my favorite pieces below!

There are definitely an array of dramatic capes that may be a bit challenging to incorporate into your everyday looks, but I love these runway pieces above for how versatile they can be. Even more-so, take a look at these options below that will definitely work into your wardrobe more easily.
