We asked: Would you wear Capes?
You said: No to Capes, with a 56-44 split in votes.
Style tip? Capes (and their cousin, the capelet) are fantastically dramatic fashion perfect for keeping warm during fall and winter. They can be an acquired taste, but it’s never been easier to look cozy and chic during the winter - all you have to do is throw on a cape. For maximum figure flattery, we recommend pairing your cape with a skinny bottom - a pair of straight leg or skinny jeans or leggings - for a dramatic big-over-small look. We’re loving capes with special detailing to break up the monotony of the fabric - particularly on trend is this military cape from Topshop that has been flying off the shelves.
Next question: Vests are key layering pieces for Fall, and this season, they’re appearing in all shapes and sizes - from the tailored vest to the dramatic faux fur variety. But what do you think? Tell us, would you wear a vest? Cast your vote on the sidebar!
