You heard it, cape style coats are a trend to keep your eye on. Though I’m not seeing many cape coats in the “real” world yet, they have been spotted on many celebrities. This is a trend to watch for 2010. It’ll be sure to come into full swing then.
Though I personally wouldn’t wear one, only because I know they are horribly unflattering on my, they look fabulous on many people. The shape can be some what of a concealer for someone uncomfortable with their mid region, or someone hiding a baby bump. Anyway, try one out! If you like how they look on you but still aren’t sure how to wear a cape coat, try one of the looks below.
1) Casual, simple, cute. A bit Christmas-y, but who cares. I’m quite fond of that cape coat. Lovely colors, lines and styling.
2) A little more dressy, chic and lovely. Try pairing a simple cape coat with a plain top, lace tights and great booties.
