In the transitional months, when it’s not quite cold enough to wear a coat, but you need another layer, choose the Cape.
We believe it is the perfect wardrobe essential.
Loved by celebs such as Taylor Swift, who favours a tartan/plaid pattern cape
matched with skinny jeans and ankle boots.
Actress Rachel Weisz is also a fan of capes as shown here wearing a luxe camel cape
draped over one shoulder, trimmed in black, and matched with knee-high black boots.
So now that we have established the need for a cape - how do you wear it?
There are three main options on how to wear a cape.
1. Place the curve of the cape around your neck and let it naturally drape either side.
2. Place the curve of the cape around your neck, then take the right-hand corner of the cape and drape it across the left shoulder - accessorise with a brooch (optional).
3. Place the curve around your neck as before and then cinch in with your favourite belt to accentuate your waist.
A tip for cape wearers
Capes come in two lengths: mini - regular or classic - long. Your height should determine which cape will look best on you.
