Hey my beautiful ladies! Temperatures may be right around the freezing mark here — but this week, style bloggers around the world changed their coats for cozy capes. While, yes, these sleeveless outerwear staples might call to mind medieval times, they’ve made their way back—and we couldn’t be more excited.
One of readers brought up an interesting point; capes may not be for everyone. We don’t think so! If you are petite the important thing is not to let the cape “overtake you”. If you wear a blanket cape, add a belt, especially if you are pear shaped. Wear a cape that is proportionate to your height and fits well. If you are plus size – A cape that hits around the thigh area helps to elongate your look. Cape blazers are also a fun way to incorporate a cape look. Tall size – The cape was made for you! Go for plaids, tweeds, long blanket capes, cardigan capes, ponchos etc. The key is to make sure you are proportionate with your outfit. If you are wearing a long cape pair it with narrow leg pants or add a belt or even wear it with a shorter dress. So, the conclusion is that the cape can be tricky sometimes but everyone can wear it.
