How to wear a cape….. You may not be a caped crusader, but pulling off this outerwear essential is surprisingly easy. Whether it’s simply a cozy addition to season staples or doubles as a tuxedo jacket, you’ll be surprised at how versatile the cape can be in your daily mix.

Blanket Cape

  1. Blanket Cape

    For the weekend, embrace the outdoorsy aspect of a blanket cape with a slouchy knit hat and denim overalls. The look reads relaxed, yet still on trend.

     

    Knit Cape

    Knit Cape

    Throw on a cozy knit cape in lieu of a chunky sweater. The poncho-esque piece serves as the ideal lightweight layer over worn-in denim and a swingy skirt.

     

    Dramatic Cape

    Dramatic Cape

    A cape that hits below the knees mimics the drama of a menswear-inspired coat. When working with so much material, the key is to keep the items underneath simple and structured, hence, the crisp button-down and skinny jeans. To offset the look’s borrowed-from-the-boys feel, finish with a strong heel.

    Evening Cape

    For a modern play on the tuxedo suit, let a sleek black cape double as your blazer. Unexpected additions, like a felt hat and embossed pants, give your look that immediate cool factor.

     

    Trench Cape

    Trench Cape

    The timeless trench cape lends itself to a myriad of styling options, but our favorite is contrasting its classic nature with more daring, of-the-moment pieces. A patent leather skirt and leopard heels act as the ying to the coat’s very sophisticated yang.
