Capes have been pretty big for the last couple of autumns and they’re not going anywhere. I’ve been looking for the perfect one for years, ever since seeing Blair Waldorf wearing one and I finally got this one for my birthday from Liam (aka the top boyfriend). I’ve been wearing it 99% of the times I’m out of the house and it goes with basically everything I wear and I’m just so in love with it.
So capes have been seen just about everywhere on and off the streets so I thought I could put together a collection of different styles of capes that are oh-so-desirable this season and they’re also ordered from most affordable to crying-because-of-my-credit-card-bill expensive.
Burgundy is one of the hottest colours this season and a burgundy cape is the perfect staple for your fall/winter wardrobe. I picked out these options for you to show you the variety of burgundy capes available. I’m aware it says red-wine at the top of this set, the burgundy colour just reminds me of it and for those of you who aren’t sure which shade of burgundy is best, the one that’s closest to your favourite red wine should do the trick.
Tartan is my go to favourite for fall/winter and these tartan-inspired, colour-blocked capes are all you need to feel cozy this fall. You can layer them over basically anything and get to feel like you’ve got a thick blanket wrapped around you at all times. Peacocks have really stepped it up this season and the first two capes from them are truly fabulous and affordable.
If tartan isn’t edgy enough or you want something a bit more monochrome, leather capes are the thing for you! They go with everything and are a step up from the classic leather biker jacket. Okay, maybe the Valentino cape isn’t all that versatile and wouldn’t go with everything but it’s so beautiful I had to put this in here.
There was no way I could include leather but not fur, I picked out some gorgeous fur capes which are just dreamy. My favourites are the first two for their gorgeous designs and the last one because I can only imagine how soft it would be to touch. However, quick disclaimer that I do not own any real fur, neither do I promote wearing real fur.
Last but not least come the shearling capes. They’re a spin on the classic shearling coat but with a cape spin. I’ve never been a big fan of shearlings as I always feel really huge in them but these cape shearlings have got me thinking and I’m seriously considering getting one. I like the second to last River Island one the most because I think it’s just the right mix of elegant and shearling.
Let me know what’s your opinion on capes in the comments. Which style will you be going for this fall?
