This week we are breaking down trend #5, the cape. This classic piece was one of the biggest takeaways from New York Fashion Week back in early 2020. To further solidify the trend (as if we needed further persuasion for this chic stunner) we saw it reemerge on the Paris runways just weeks later. We are seeing the cape this fall in a multitude of styles and shapes: the poncho–as a knit and a jacket, the cape–long and short, and the shawl–worn like a wrap. There are options for all!

If you’re looking for style and function, the poncho jacket is a perfect choice. It will keep you warm while buttoned up while still adding a dash of style to any outfit. And the warm camel tone is a nice neutral that will work in practically any wardrobe.

We love the drama the long cape offers, as well as the versatility–pair it with denim and a great deconstructed woven, over a flirty dress with a slouchy boot, or atop with your leather leggings. Ooh la la.
Are short capes a thing? Yes, they are very much a thing! What we love about the short cape is the wearability it presents. Think of it as a shawl concept, but more structured. You can wear the short cape with denim or with a nice trouser pant (like leather, yum). You can wear it with a dress depending on your shape and silhouette, but be mindful of portions, as you want to be balanced! Here are a few short capes that are stunning!
