Fashion Friday: Caped Crusader

My friend/styling partner in crime has a good view on the cape trend: when done right it’s absolute perfection. When done wrong it’s an absolute train wreck (think Little Red Riding Hood). I have yet to buy one but keep eyeing them because they look so damn cozy (only problem, how do you carry a purse over your shoulder? Under the cape?) Regardless, this trend has been around and is sticking around.

Natalie Portman looks like sheer perfection here.  If you don’t like that style of cape try a sweater/knit version like on the Luca Luca runway.

Some others to try:

Obsessed with this Paul Smith one– the lining is delicious, the price not so much.

Anthropologie does it SO right.
