Tis the season to zoom in on one of the biggest trends this fall. Thinking of a winter coat that’s bang on trend to invest in? Look no further than the cape! We’ve even got options too – short, ankle sweeping, fitted or flowing. I think the cape coat is one of the most distinctive looks for the cold weather.

High End Designers such as Zac Posen, Alexander McQueen, Salvatore Ferragamo, Marc Jacobs, Peter Som and Phillip Lim have all made highly covetable cape designs. Fear not Dolls, High Street Stores have produced some chic versions you couldn’t resist! Head to Zara, TopShop, French Connection, Matalan and H&M.

Neutral hues like camel, grey and black are great for complementing most colours in your winter closet. Neutral tones too boring for you? Jazz up your cape with a brooch! For a fashionable silhouette, rock a cape coat with a fitted dress or skinny jeans in the style of Cat Deeley.

The most important thing about a thigh-length cape coat is to buy one that flatters your body shape and suits your personality. I would recommend going down a size to avoid a frumpy look! Petite ladies, use a waist belt for more structure.

I absolutely love the cape coat trend. They are probably the most practical look of this season and with how comfortable and cosy these get, every woman at every age can have a piece of it! What do you girlies make of the cape? Love it or Loathe it?
