Styling Tips on How to Wear a Cape:
If you have noticed the cape/poncho trend is the "IT" thing.  I actually do not own a cape - yet.  I guess for one, I am not sure where I would wear it, and if it would look good on me.  It seems that it is too cold where I live to just wear a cape (maybe in the spring/fall it would work).  If I was to buy one (and I really like this pink plaid one), I would probably style it like Liz from Sequins & Stripes. (She is actually wearing a large scarf, made to look like a cape, which works.)  I like how she added a belt.  It adds definition at the waist, which is definitely more figure flattering.  Also, another trend is tying the belt, not actually wearing it how it was designed to work.  If you want to try the trend, the next time you buy a belt, buy it a few sizes bigger than you typically wear, and try tying it. (And, if you need help on how to tie a belt - here is a tutorial.) And, if you are not into the plaid capes, here is a great leopard one or this grid version or reversible one for only $23!

  1. While I do like the poncho and cape trend on other people, I personally think I'm going to pass on it. I'm a slow adapter when it comes to trends! I do love the print of the peach & black one you chose, and that BP fringe tote is so cute!

  4. I love capes on other women, but I feel that I am too short for them. However, that Asos cape is making me think I should at least try one!

  5. Beautiful cape and works so well with flare jeans! I really need a pair. I used to be a huge fan and so happy to see they are back.
