Great Looking Caped Jacket For A Date Night:
After almost ten years of marriage, we still try our best to have “date nights” regularly. I love the idea of getting dressed up for these because you can always add a little more sex appeal or something unexpected to feel more special with your partner or husband. A lot of time my “go to” outfit for these dates are jeans with a sexy top, heels and a great jacket. Well I bought this fabulous cape jacket a couple of weeks ago and I have been dying to wear it out. So why not tonight!
Cape jackets and cloaks come in and out of fashion every few years, and this year is a definite “in year” for them. There are all kinds of takes on them on the runway and in the stores from tailored to feminine, cropped to long, architectural to soft and drapy. So basically there is something for everyone out there. They usually look best with a slimmer silhouette in the bottom like leggings or skinny pants but you can also wear them with skirts or dresses but I would still stick to slimmer silhouettes underneath. One way that I have seen a lot of designers showing this season is the longer capes or cape jackets with the same length skirt or dress underneath which actually looks really fresh. I would stay away from wearing them with an over sized bottom; you don’t want the outfit to take over you.
I chose to wear mine with a simple white tank top underneath because I liked my arms showing to give it that sexy look since this was a “date night”. Normally they look great with a long sleeve top underneath but make sure the top has a slim or tight sleeve. Long or short gloves look great with them as well. Try carrying a clutch bag as opposed to a shoulder bag which becomes cumbersome with the cape.
