What’s warm, regal, and the totally unexpected cherry on top of any fall ensemble? Answer: capes. The way that they flow while walking down the street make a boring commute a downright runway moment, and they’re basically wearable blankets. What’s not to love?
Starting a cape collection is no small feat. Not all capes are created equal – it only takes one bad renaissance fair reminiscent piece to make that abundantly clear. The good news is that there are plenty of cashmere, wool, and silk options to quench my newfound love for capes without throwing off my painstakingly curated fall wardrobe.
