When Should You Wear Capes?
You can find plenty of proof that capes are an essential fashion accessory that you can wear in any season on the internet. For many women, capes or cloaks is a must-wear in fall or autumn. As a result, many women shy away from trying them in other seasons when they shine and add a particular element of style to your dresses.
But, if you are not familiar with the potential of these cloaks and the confidence they can add to your character, you’d often find yourself asking – When to wear a cape? As an outerwear fashion trend, capes never cease to return on the streets and the runways.
When wearing a cape, the first issue that comes to mind is layering: Just what you need to wear underneath it? And at what time of year is it most wearable? The answer, however, is subjective as it depends on what style of the cape you are looking at. If you have opted for a lightweight blanket-style scarf, you can easily carry around it on your shoulders. It can protect you from uncertain weather without you being compromising on your style. If you are going for a bulkier thicker cape-like Venice’s Tabarro, wear a cotton shirt underneath. This brings us to our next big problem: Capes make you look bigger than you are, or either they make you feel hot. However, we’ve got solutions for that too.
Next, we discuss how to wear a cape most stylishly and effectively:
Add it Over Your Leisurewear.
You may have never even thought about it, but a cape could come in handy before and after your gym sessions. Not to forget the times when you were running for an errand. You can put it over your favorite athleisure outfit. Plus, you can leave your bags at home as they have numerous pockets inside, so you can relax and move while wearing them. You can add your daily necessities such as phone, metro cards, credit cards, ear pods, etc., to these pockets while you go out of your home.
Wear it With Thigh-High Boots
When you are wearing a thick fabric cape, wear a shirt or mini dress underneath. If you are wearing a shirt, you can pair it with a pair of jeans. You’d be amazed to see how perfectly it goes with thigh-high boots. Also, a classic patterned and colored cape is a clothing piece that can faithfully serve you for many years to come.
Blend it With Different Fabrics
If you are looking to create something timeless and sophisticated, give an excellent thought to the double-breasted cape that comes with a belt at the waist that perfectly highlights your waistline. In case you are still not sure about it. Let us make a beautiful suggestion for you. You can create a charming and elegant look with wide trousers or a long mermaid gown. It goes perfectly with a formal event.
To get something more attractive, you can add it to your slim leather pants while wearing a silk shirt underneath, or you can even mix it up with a different and unique look that you may have been looking to carry for a particular occasion. Or you can wear it with a shirt tucked in your leather pants that lets your curves become a part of your attire, further adding more character to your perfect chic look.
Highlight the Waistline With a Solid-Colored Belt
You can find multiple color belts that can add an extra element to your capes. However, not every cape has the option to add straps to them. Hence, this stylish look goes for very particular types of capes. That said, if you are someone who appreciates an attractive monochrome look, this can be just the thing you are looking for. Moreover, it’s a great way to intensify your look with this type of outfit. Furthermore, you’ll not be compromising on your comfort while looking classic and modern at the same time.
Try Wearing it With a Maxi Skirt.
