Fall's Top Trends #2 - The Cape Coat

I must say the cape coat is one of my top trends this fall. First introduced in the 19th century, the cape coat has made a come back this season, as they were seen all over the runways and now they finally out in stores. The cape's old world feeling will be a welcomed addition to any fall wardrobe. Worn with a pair of skinny jeans  and tall riding boots will keep you warm on crisp autumn day.

My favorite cape is from Steven Alan's fall collection. Unfortunately the navy (which is my favorite) is completely sold out. I am anxiously awaiting to see if they restock again before it is too cold to warm there here.

  7. I'm really excited I got a vintage wool cape to wear this winter, and I'm also planning on belting huge shawls into cape-like creations.
