Statement Staple: Capes

If you are curious what will be this season’s outwear hero piece, then look to capes to quickly fill that void. Over the years, capes have a tendency to dip in and out of the scene. For this season, we’re happy to jump on board with the newest iterations, particularly when they defy all of our previously held associations. Glossy leather, maxi lengths, utilitarian details, shimmering sequins, head-turning hues and feminine adornments signify that the focus this season is on modernizing the silhouettes, fabrics, colors and formal nature of capes. When evening strikes, sequined or ribbon embellishments will provide an elegant accompaniment to glamorous dresses. For daytime, nothing can provide that polished finish to a look quite like scalloped edges or houndstooth prints. If you’re jonesing for a cape, much like we are, then shop our top picks below.
