As much as I dislike the cold, I love yummy outerwear!! It might be because it’s an excuse to wear something that hugs you like your favorite fluffy blanket, we all have them! Capes in particular rank high on my list! I have found they’re typically less bulky than a coat and easier to wear as part of your outfit. This is especially helpful for days when you’re constantly in and out of the weather, it’s practical yet stylish!
The best part about a cape is it pairs beautifully over any sort of base layer. No need to worry if it will fit over your favorite chunky sweaters, the answer is yes! The cape is extremely forgiving and instantly pulls your outfit together! Half way through the season, when the real cold hits Nashville, is about when I start to tire of my coziest sweaters! However, when it’s 30 degrees outside it’s extremely hard to give up your best knits. Instead of giving them up, I just add another layer!
Not only does it work well for cold winter months, but it’s the perfect addition to denim and lighter weight pieces now! I love dressing mine up, or simply throwing on with boyfriend jeans and flats! It truly is such a versatile wardrobe staple! To dress it up, add a little leather on the bottom half of your outfit! Leather leggings or a leather skirt are sure to instantly elevate your look. I don’t know about you, but I feel much less guilty constantly living in an outerwear piece than anything else! The plaid cape featured in this post is from this year, and is already on sale with an additional 40% off – safe to say it won’t be around long!! Below you’ll find plenty of options to choose from! I’ve compiled multiple styles along coordinating essentials for a complete outfit! Happy shopping!
