There are few outfits that cannot be further glorified with the adroit addition of a cape. And there are quite a few glorious examples to choose from!
Capes were all the rage back in the Middle Ages, and are still considered to be both trendy and practical among most elves. And who are we to argue with the elves?
There are few rules when it comes to capes other than this one: wear them!
The length you can decide yourself, all from just covering the shoulders, to waist long, or the full length cape.
A Chanel cape. What does that tell you? That capes are more than kosher. Go get one! Get two!
I don’t mean to be going all Little Red Riding Hood, but they are all so pretty! Sadly I could not find pictures of two of my favorite capes, since they are from two old Christmas movies (one Norwegian and one Czechoslovakian, if you can imagine), so now I’m going a little berserk with all the other pretty capes I think you should see.
Nothing wrong with the vintage Navy nurse look! No, no.
Audrey Hepburn in a fantabulous cape in Funny Face. Oh yeah, and she got Fred Astaire. See where I’m going with this?
Vintage Oscar de la Renta. Nice.
I know, I know, this is a picture of Emma Watson. But she’s wearing Vivienne Westwood. And for that, she stays.
And Yves Saint-Laurent.
Aren’t they all wonderfully scrumptous? So I say, let’s go medieval and bring back the cape! You know you want to…
