The Fash Flash – Do You Cape?

After my What to Wear post last week I thought we could kick off the week by sharing a little round up of my favourite capes… I should really be doing a winter coat round up, but I love a good cape and somehow they seem so much more stylish. Or maybe it’s just because they’re new-feeling, either way, I’m now lusting after another one to add to my collection.

If you haven’t already seen the one I purchased, head back to my What to Wear post first (I’m obviously biased towards the lovely wool felted Zara number I’m wearing there) but otherwise, let’s get started with the smart capes.

L-R: Bow detail cape coat – ASOS Red Coco Cape – Jaeger Boutique,  and (BARGAIN ALERT!) Brass button teal cape – New Look.

There’s something about capes, perhaps the clean lines or the luxe drape, that makes them really smart even when they’re not trying to be. The Red Jaeger Boutique one above would be a perfect Christmas present, or if you’re looking for a cheap and cheerful alternative, how about this steal of a cape from New Look, reduced to £34!

L-R: Knitted Poncho – Zara, Dark red wool duffle cape – Gloverall at ASOS and Checked Cape – Oasis.

Capes lend themselves just as well to cosy weekend walks and pub lunches though, and it’s just about all I can do to resist these duffled, checked or knitted numbers. Imagine them with boots and a polo neck… you just need a dog!

If you’re feeling flush, how about splashing out on one of these fabulous capes from the fash pack’s favourite designers…

L-R: Alice by Temperly Black and White Bird Cape –, Milly Wool Blend Cape Jacket – and Diane von Furstenburg Cotton twill cape –

I’ve been lusting after the black and white bird cape for so long now but the DVF trench-like number is super chic too.

Tell me, do you cape? Can I tempt you, or have I missed something you’d like to share?
