Crazy For Capes And Cape Jackets For Fall
Last week I wrote about women’s Capes and Cape jackets being a big trend for fall and showed you some of my favorites from the fall 2014 designer runway shows. I also included a few light jackets for women that I am eyeing for myself that are currently available in stores. I have to say that capes are one of my favorite trends for this fall and even though they were starting to trend last fall, I feel like they are finally becoming more main stream and many more women are actually opening up to wearing them now. I actually bought a cape jacket last year from Vertigo and I showed it in one of my first blog stories. Back then I chose to wear it for a date night and wanted to give it a sexier look with jeans, a tank top and heels. See link here.
I wanted to show you another look with this cape jacket, since they are such a hot item right now among womens jackets and blazers. I got the opportunity last week when we finally had a few cooler days in Los Angeles, that’s if you can call 70’s cooler but hey it’s better than 80’s and 90’s right? I was meeting a client for a business lunch and I thought I would wear my cape jacket again and style it for a fall daytime look. One of my main go to color combos for fall is black with tan. It’s a great neutral color combo and you can easily add a pop color to it in your accessories. It also looks great with gold jewelry and I tend to wear more gold, it just looks better on my skin and with my complexion. I decided to wear the cape jacket with my goldish tan sweater top, faux leather leggings and one of my favorite scarves that I have had for years. Normally scarves are tricky to pair with capes but my cape jacket is really like a blazer with a caplet instead of sleeves so that made it easier to add the scarf.
Here are some tips on how to wear scarves with capes or cape jackets:
- Wear smaller scarves mainly around your neck.
- Choose a scarf that is made of a soft and fluid fabric to contrast your heavier cape fabric.
- Let the scarf fall and blend in with the cape and not over take it.
I hope you find these tips helpful, will you be wearing some capes or cape jackets this fall. Don’t forget to check out my recent line of blazers for women on sale.
