Fashion Friday: The Fall Cape

Yes, we know it’s still reaching the 80s here in the East Coast. Nevertheless, we’d like to get you prepared for the soon-to-come chill in the air. In those early days of the season when it’s not yet cold enough for the warmth of the traditional fall coat, think of it as the perfect opportunity to don the Fall Cape. Stylish, elegant, refined, and versatile, the Fall Cape is a dashing topper that is guaranteed to make an unforgettable entrance. Very much like the fall coat, the Cape has to do a lot as well—it has to be fashionable while also being functional, warm, cool, color compatible, and able to combat rain, wind, and possibly, dare we say it, early flurries. In other words, the Fall Cape is a fashion statement that needs to be taken seriously for its functionality. This autumn season features an array of stunning trends in colors, fabrics, and designs that offer a wonderful opportunity to take the Fall Cape to another level. Here we share with you some of our high-caliber favorites.
