This month I have been pulling pieces out of my closet that have not been getting any love. If I can’t think of some way to style a piece of clothing, it goes into the garage sale pile. I have had this black sweater cape for three years and have only worn it once. I love it, but have been stumped regarding how to style it. Before I tagged it to sell, I did some cape research, and came up with several ways I can style it! So, now I can keep it!
Here are a few simple rules for styling your own cape!
1. Pair your cape with a fitted, bright colored top. Be sure that your bottom layer sweater or blouse is constructed of a thinner material so you can add warmth, but avoid creating extra bulk.
2. Keep your bottoms more fitted to the body,in contrast to the looser fit on top. Add a pencil skirt to keep your proportion lean. When wearing something loose fitting, or bulky, on top, be sure that your bottom half is cut more to fit.
3. Carry a cross body bag, tote, or a clutch. Shoulder bags will cause the cape to bunch – not cute and very uncomfortable.
4. Top off a casual plaid top and denim bottoms with a more dressy cape, for a fun, youthful daytime look.
I was able to create several more looks with a cape, so this piece is a keeper! Here are two more ways to style a cape this fall! Do you own a cape? If so, what is your favorite way to wear it? Have a blessed day!
