A Case for Capes

Step aside Superman, capes aren’t just for superheroes any more! Their ease and comfort make them the perfect option for combating the Polar Vortex that’s sweeping the nation. Having trouble fitting your chunky sweaters underneath that sleek coat you wore all fall long? Take a note from celebs like Karlie Kloss and Solange Knowles and embrace this old fashioned favorite.

Even if you’re not ready to splurge on the runway versions from designers like Ted Baker, Saint Laurent, and Valentino, there are always more budget friendly options from ASOS, Mango, and Zara to fall back on. And don’t be afraid to venture away from classic black wool. Plaid, red, knits, and blazer/cape hybrids are all just as chic and much less expected. So hang up those boring standard coats and save them for another time. Today you’re rocking the cape and the stylish super powers that come with it!
