Capes: The New Jackets

It’s official; capes really are the new jackets, and it all started with Christopher Bailey’s monogrammed Burberry Prorsum blanketed poncho that celebrities wore like it was their favourite thing. 

Next thing you know, the cape’s taken different prints, silhouettes and fabrics – short one that rides your back, the mid-length elbow-grazing one and the floor-length beauty – a style for everyone. This outerwear piece is mysterious, stylish and most importantly give you freedom of movement unlike the staple jacket. And, it goes over pretty much everything – have fun playing around!
