Capes - A Style for Everyone!

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 has made it huge – in different prints, silhouettes and fabrics. There’s the 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; you can play with styling it.

Here are some of our fave #ootd styles featuring the empowering cape.
