When it comes to capes, it’s a clothing item we only associate with superheroes but this chic cover could well become the superhero of your closet. If you’re truly looking for a winter fashion tip, these coat alternatives are here to save the day! From a blanket scarf to a poncho, a cape is a coverup that is draped over the shoulders with sufficient space for mobility. Little wonder then that it even made its way to the Golden Globes red carpet recently! With just about every girl worth her style getting bundled up in a cape, here are a few ways you can try the trend...

chic capes and how to style them 600x400

Style it up with ripped jeans

When it comes to amping up winter wear for women, just the thought of adding a cape to our favourite pair of denims makes us happy campers! For a cold evening over cocktails, drape your cape over a simple solid coloured T-shirt and and a classic blue pair of jeans that’s ripped at the knee. Pair it with a tan tote and matching wedges.

Pair it with a pencil skirt

Being the epitome of office chic, the narrow silhouette of the pencil skirt complements the flowing one of the cape beautifully. Throw on a muted neutral cape over a colour block outfit for an office meeting over lunch to show that you truly mean business. Don’t forget to accessorise with a bright pair of pumps!

Cinch with a belt

If you want to mix things up and try a new way of wearing your cape, belt it up. Wear your cape on a morning coffee break over your outfit and around the waist, place a thin or thick belt in a complementary colour and belt it firmly as you pair it with a matching handbag.

Dress it up with culottes

Before you’re afraid of the oversized silhouette of this piece of clothing, let us tell you that the flow of the culottes and cape actually complement each other nicely to form a fashion forward look. Draping a pastel toned cape over your shoulders goes well with a pair of well-tailored culottes and pointed pumps for an office party.

Team it with tights

Being the superhero that the cape is, teaming it with something simple could also work wonders for you. Pair an oversized cape with an outfit of a shorter hem with sheer tights underneath so it completely covers it up. Belt it up at the waist with only your tights showing through and finish off with gorgeous beach waves.

Keep it simple with yoga pants

Although created for the purpose of exercising, yoga pants are so comfy, we can wear them 24x7! So why not dress it up with a cape! Merge the chic cape with an athleisure flair by pairing your printed cape with a simple pair of yoga pants and a T-shirt. Toss in a pair of sneakers and you are all set for a day of running errands while looking hella fab!

Spice it up with a dress

Add an additional flair of femininity to your dress with a well-tailored cape that will add a whole new dimension to your look. Drape it over your shoulders for it to sit in such a way that a small section of the dress peeks through. This look is perfect for a hectic day on the go and when paired with a cute pair of white slipons, it serves for a sporty chic look.
