2. Block Colour Is Key

If you are a little wary of donning a cape, then the best thing to do is keep your outfit fuss free by ensuring you’re only wearing one colour. Whether it’s a chic black, white or even a bright orange, a consistent colour will help keep the cape looking streamlined and feel a little easier to wear.

3. Use It To See You Through The Seasons

While some thicker capes are perfect for right now and others are made for the sunny months, the relaxed, open style of the garment makes them perfect for cross-season dressing. Make like this street styler and work your floaty frocks early by teaming with boots and a winter cape. All-year-round winner, tick!
