How To Wear Capes Without Looking Like The Caped Crusador Or Dracula

There’s something effortlessly chic about capes. Unfortunately, there’s nothing effortless or chic about looking like a character out of Downton Abbey or a superhero in full regalia (at least in your day-to-day life).

Capes are some of the trickiest cold-weather gear out there. But after the past few winters, it seems apparent that they’re here to stay, and we say, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Below, our tips for rocking a cape like you just came back from a European vacay:

Be color conscious: Avoid wearing head-to-toe black, or you’ll look like Count Dracula (Transylvania: Europe? Not Europe? Not cute).

Short girls: Capes that fall about hip length are your best bet for body-lengthening illusions.

Tall girls: Capes that hit above your waist will make you look like you’re wearing your little sister’s winter coat — try a style that hits below the hip.

Length is the end-all be-all: No matter your height, stay away from capes that hit below the knee (Dracula strikes again!)

We have something for everyone in the slideshow below:
