I know it’s still warm outside, but with stores already unveiling their fall collection, I’ve found myself daydreaming about fuzzy sweaters and warm coats. One of the trends this winter is the cape coat. I have to admit, it took a while for me to start liking this trend. At first I thought I’d kind of resemble a witch wearing a cape and all that I needed as an accessory would be a broom! Well, I decided to save the broom and pointy hat for Halloween, instead I decided to embrace this trend and strut my stuff in a head-turning cape, that’s not only a statement piece, but it can really be worn from day to night.
If you’re looking to invest in a cape this winter, you will have plenty to choose from in various price ranges. The two above are quite similar… but vary in price. The one from Topshop, although more affordable, does look like the material may not be as expensive as the one from the Rachel Zoe collection (my favorite celebrity stylist). I haven’t had a chance to see any of Rachel’s pieces in person yet, but I’m hoping to make a few purchases soon… so check back for my reviews.
