The Perfect Cape

December 11, 2015

I believe outerwear should not only be functional, it also has to make a statement. I am a little obsessed with coats and people who know me would attest to that. My fascination with capes began two years ago and it has taken me over a year to find the perfect cape. I saw a couple I liked online, but they were either too expensive, had bad reviews, or they were from questionable websites that I wasn’t so sure about. A friend of mine sent me a link to this beautiful wool cape from J.Crew back in August, but I did not purchase it right away due to mixed online reviews. I went to my local J.Crew store to try it on and the rest, as they say, is history. Unfortunately this cape is no longer available online or in store. If cost is not an issue, J.Crew offers this lovely cashmere cape and a budget friendly option from J.Crew  factory. Many designers showed some version of cape outerwear in their fall 2015 runway collections. I really like the two capes featured below, the black one from Dolce & Gabbana and the dusty rose cape from Nanette Lepore.

Thanks for reading!
