Ask Belle: Outerwear Capes for Fall
Oct 12, 2015
It’s all Ask Belle all week. 138 unanswered e-mails. Let’s knock some of these out.
I’m in the market for a cape that’s a reasonable stand-in for a coat (not just a sweater). I’d be willing to spend a couple hundred dollars on one, but only if I can find something that’s timeless and high quality enough to be worth it. My style tends towards the colorful and preppy. Any suggestions?
I know Edna Mode says, “no capes,” but I love a good cape. It brings in a little bit of chic, a little bit of drama. It really lifts a simple outfit. Here are a few in the under-$250 price range that might fit the bill.
I love this. It’s the perfect mix of casual and chic. Perfect with jeans, over a black dress, or with a pair of trousers. The color is just great.
Classic shape. Very feminine. Can’t go wrong here. Good evening-wear option.
This is the coolest, chicest cape in the post. I can’t believes it 50%-off. I can’t believe it’s still available in most sizes. Want.
Plus-size? The only outerwear cape I could find (that wasn’t hideous) is this one from Jessica London. There were no outerwear capes for petite ladies, that I could find. If someone has a suggestion for petite, tall, or plus-size readers, leave it in the comments.
