Capes are super on trend this year, and I for one LOVE the look. Sure, it can be a smidge tricky with a purse, but one you find the right bag (I recommend a small cross body worn under the cape) they are such stylish and easy pieces to wear in cooler weather. Especially if you aren’t feeling your fittest- they camouflage a multitude of sins (in my case, chips and hummus+ wine + no time to work out). Pair them with skinny jeans, leggings or tights and a short skirt or dress to keep the volume up top, making legs look leaner!
Here are some great inspirations from street style folk and some celebs- all doin’ it right- after the pics, I have a special offer for you guys to get you into one of your own:
Kate and Sienna look so cool in black. But does Kate ever not look awesome? yeah, didn’t think so.
