Not all heroes wear capes, but fabulous ones do! In yesterday’s post, I talked about how one of the season’s hottest trends is none other than The Cape. (If you missed it, you can check it out here!) Capes remind me of Hollywood Glam circa 1920 and I love it. Whether it’s a capelet, blanket cape, or traditional cape, this sophisticated piece isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
While the understated capelets are a little more subtle, the statement cape is make sure they live up to their name. And this leather Christina Karin cape does just that (only available on her website here, but I have a similar one linked below). A contemporary twist on the classic, this piece is one of my current obsessions. The winter white against the buttery black trim makes it the perfect contrast for the season. It’s an updated version of the leather jacket adding a little more sophistication and glamour.
Because the cape is the headliner of this outfit, I kept the rest of the look fairly simple, understated, and sexy. A semi-sheer black tank top and my favorite pair of hip-hugging Zara jeans. Once it gets colder, I’m going to pair this look with over the knee boots! For now, red soles are the way to go ;). I slipped on my cheetah print Christian Louboutin heels.
How are you wearing The Cape trend?!
