a great cape

Thinking today about a particular piece of outerwear that is making a bit of a statement this year. The caped overcoat, made popular during the Victorian era, is an incredible mid-season choice for its versatility and elegance. Though we can’t count on a flattered figure while sporting a cape, there is an element of femininity and grace that results from pairing with anything from skinny jeans to a tailored skirt. You know by now, I love a classic piece…and a great cape is one consummate example.
