In my eyes, a look can go from good to great with just one piece. Sometimes it’s a necklace, shoes, a dress or in this case, a cape! *Not to be confused with a magician, or superhero! Capes are a chic and trendy way to add a layer of warmth, and to make an entrance. This is the first cape I have purchased and I must say it did not disappoint.
A cape is such a dramatic item to don. I selected this particular one because it was not made of thick coat material, but more of a blazer/vest construction. This item is perfect for an evening out, or amping up your transitional gear for fall and winter.
For my first styling with the piece I wanted to add a touch of sparkle, so I paired it with a sequin embellished tank from Express (similar). The hint of shimmer is excellent, and really makes this look special. I selected black skinny jeans and my favorite fall over-the-knee boots by Steve Madden.
For a final touch, I added a classic pair of black sunglasses (similar), my Kate Spade tote (similar) and this gorgeous branch necklace from Fascinating Diamonds. The delicate chain makes the branch appear weightless, such a shimmering and elegant piece of jewelry.
This is the perfect dinner, or evening out look! I cannot wait to start wearing this out and about this season and feel more cape purchases are in my future! I have linked similar capes and complementary pieces, so you can create your own fabulous look!
