How To Wear Capes pg2

- Cosmo Editor

As seen on the Autumn/Winter 2012 runways of designers like Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs and Zac Posen, capes come in different shapes, sizes and fabrics. They’re fashionable, versatile, warm, and look super-chic when worn with a pared-down silhouette. They’re also elegant and sophisticated, and can take your look from casual to dressy in an instant.

Below are a few things that should be considered before choosing a cape.

Capes work best with slim bottoms like skinny jeans, leggings and pencil skirts. For a classic look, pair your cape with a pencil skirt or narrowly tailored pants. Capes also look amazing when worn with skinny jeans tucked into boots.
For a warmer look, layer your cape with a turtleneck top and a few vests.
To lengthen your silhouette even more, pair a cape with heels. This will make your look even dressier.
Accessories like hats, scarves or a huge cocktail ring add edginess, but don’t overdo it, as it will make your look too ‘busy’. A simple pair of studs will complete the look.
