10 Ways to Rock a Cape Coat this Season
Ditch your normal outerwear duds for a stylish cape coat this season. A cape coat is the most luxurious yet fuss-free outerwear option to toss over both your casual and formal fall outfits. If you haven't given this trend a test drive yet, let these 10 looks inspire you to look like a style superhero!
Over Your Dress
If you’re hesitant about diving headfirst into this trend, start with a cape sweater like this one worn by style blogger With Love From Kat. A cape sweater complements jeans, trousers, or a mini skirt.
Casually with Jeans
With a Collar
With Tall Boots
Coordinate Your Cape
Top off your look with a color-coordinated cape like the one Kristina of Kayture wears. We love the matchy-matchy aesthetic of this outfit because it creates a high-end look.
With a Print
This bold printed cape speaks for itself—nothing else is needed. Chiara of The Blonde Salad channeled her inner Audrey Hepburn and added chic leather gloves to finish off this look. Invest in one of our favorite cape prints this season: plaid, animal print, or houndstooth.
A cape vest is a lighter-weight alternative to a cape coat and can be styled the same way. Throw a cape vest over a dress, skirt, or a pair of jeans as Helena of Brooklyn Blonde did. Because a vest can be less formal, elevate your look with a pair of heels.
Add a Brooch
More often than not, capes come in solid colors such as camel, black, white, and gray. Add a bit of influence to your coat with a colorful brooch as Liz of Late Afternoon did. To dress up your look, team your cape with leather pants.
For those who live in warmer climates and think they can’t participate in the trend, we have a solution for you. Meet the cape blazer! This style of cape pairs well with almost anything and works for every occasion. Synde of Sydne Style couples hers with leather pants, but jeans, a skirt, or even a mini dress would be the perfect complement as well.
