A cape is the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe…even the Duchess of Cambridge thinks so! Yes, I will admit that my hunt for a cape was sparked by these People magazine photos of Kate, out and about while pregnant with George a few years ago wearing her Zara cape.
While unable to find the exact same one (or should I say, unwilling to pay what ebay sellers are asking) I did find an item with a similar feel this season at Suzy Shier (40% off at the time of this posting). Admittedly it is considered a poncho and not a cape (according to my research, a cape is defined by its open front) it does have the circular shape of a cape (rather than the angles of a traditional poncho). Got all that?
Feeling very “cape”-able tonight! 😉 (Yes, this is actually a poncho- it isn’t open at the front – but it’s the closest thing I could find to Kate Middleton’s cape so please allow me to indulge in the bad pun.) Once sweater weather arrives I find it hard to spice up my outfits and still stay warm. This new number I picked up from @suzyshierofficial does the trick! (Photography credits to Liv, who made me laugh so hard we have some great never-to-be-posted outtakes!) #ponchos #capes #fallfashion #fashion #style
If you’re looking for a cape of your own, I’ve gathered some choices to help – as you can see I lean towards the plaids and neutrals, but I tried to branch out. All are under $100 except the designer one at $1200. Can you spot it?
