Local Trends: Cozy Capes in the Northeast

September 25, 2006 by SheFindsSuzelle
shefinds |

Fall has brought us layers, lots and lots of layers. And we’re seeing capes. Not the bulky crocheted poncho Martha Stewart wore to hide her jail-weight or the flapping fabrics that Goth teens favor, but cute toppers that still let your other layers peek through. There are jacket versions for the office, sweater capelets for weekend wear and outerwear options more on-trend than that old pashmina.

Make sure your layers are simple and lightweight; not frilly and fussy. Wear slim pants or pencil skirts to balance out the volume and bulk of the cape. A hip-length cape can camouflage big busts or thick-ish waists, but watch where it cuts your torso.

Follow the Trend:
