2015 Fall/Winter Essential Wardrobe Piece: a Cape!

Capes were spotted everywhere during Paris Fashion week!  Traditional jackets have been given the cold shoulder this season.  When you see a woman in a cape don’t you imagine them as being a confident fashionista with a sensational wardrobe?  But let’s be honest, don’t you feel you might look silly if you don’t style it right?  I know that we sometimes have a hard time actually pulling off a cape without feeling a little “out there.”

This plaid cape that Jen is wearing looks outdated in a thrift store, but when you add a scarf and gloves .. you have upped your game to movie star status!  (we found this cape for only $2.00)

This idea of taking a traditional cape and adding a fur collar (which we find ALL the time in thrift stores) is amazing!
