Today I explain “The Cape”. Capes are awesome, though not particularly trendy. Timeless style is a life hack, for any stylist working on a budget. I assure you. Styling a client with a fashion piece, which does not go out of style or trend is genius, because it was never really ‘in-style’ per se. Not only is it budget friendly but is also impossible to tag, to a particular season. Perfect for a Lady or Tomboy, in my opinion.
Here’s a street look that I have added to show the Cape blazer can be worn in different ways.
The link below is a cape blazer that I have had my eye on for a couple of weeks. I adore the embroidery and it is also available in black, regardless, I prefer the PINK!
Also available in black and white.
I am partial to the original cape. It has a bit of a sporty vibe to it and while wearing it, I feel like a super hero or manga character without actually compromising on fun and style. There are many ways to wear capes and they come in one size so it is impossible to go wrong whilst buying online. I bought the same cape in navy, khaki and grey but kept the grey one in the end. My romance with Grey has lasted a minute. This is effort on my part, to incorporate more colour into my pastel and nude wardrobe.
The downside to capes is you need confidence to pull them off. One cannot be shy and slouch whilst wearing them for fear of looking like the hunchback of Notre dame. A cape must be worn with good posture, subtle confidence and your colour of choice must be carefully selected. If you are one of those people that loves black, I suggest you run your choice by a stylist or at least some honest girlfriends so that you do not end up looking like a grim reaper.
The main advantage of a cape is that, it is versatile and handles my mood swings impeccably. It looks good with pants when I feel like a Tomboy and looks brilliant with a skirt or dress when I feel more lady-like.
