Capes are in it to win it again this fall and winter, so above I’ve provided a round-up of some of my favorites. As you can see in this post, this post and this post, I’m a fan. However, it’s important to note that my fondness for the chicly shapeless outerwear goes beyond just a desire to occasionally pretend I’m Hermione Granger (as discussed here) and/or cover up a Chipotle-induced food belly. Not only do I find them very attractive and oh. so. comfortable, but they can also be absolutely clutch when wearing a blazer or suit to the office (as worn in this post). If you’re someone that works in a business formal environment and find yourself awkwardly trying to stuff your suit jacket sleeves into the sleeves of a coat or trench, you probably know the misery of this process, not to mention the irreversible wrinkling effect on your suit jacket/blazer sleeves that are subsequently on display throughout the rest of your work day. Enter the cape, which allows for the abandonment of the awkwardly over-stuffed arms, yet still provides that critical extra layer of warmth. So go ahead, get your cape on.
