Fall Trend Alert: The Cape

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

These swingy capes are popping up everywhere, and I am definitely a fan. With a pair of skinny jeans, I think they are a modern take on the classic trench coat. However, on my most recent trip to TJ Maxx (my go-to store for shopping without spending a lot of $$ —find a location near you here ) I tried on quite a few capes, but I can’t seem to find one that “works” on me. I think part of the problem is that I am not quite sure how they are supposed to fit, so it is hard to tell whether I need to go down a size or if it is simply supposed to be that loose. So the hunt for my perfect cape continues. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite options from the web:

Top row, from left:
1. M Missoni black leather-trimmed cape
2. Zero+MariaCornejo Shearling-lined leather cape
3. Stella McCartney
4. Burberry Brit wool duffel cape
Bottom row, from left:
1. Calypso-celle
2. Missoni wool-blend cape
3. Far Fetch cropped cape
4. J Crew knitted wool cape

How do you style your cape? I’d love to see your pictures! Post a comment linking to your blog post about capes, post your pictures to our Facebook page, or send your pictures to sugarandchiffon@gmail.com . Have a great Monday!
