Today we'll tackle trend #3 in the week long series of what trends I think are important for Fall (check out #1 here and #2 here) - capes! I'm all in with this trend because capes are comfy, timeless and great transition pieces! And there are so many options from cardigan-like to coat-like so you have quite a few choices depending on how you want to wear them. The cape trend comes and goes rather frequently, so if you want to invest in a cape that you can wear for years, make sure you focus on one in a shape and color that will be timeless! Try for a midweight higher quality woven one in solid black, camel, grey or ivory. Knits won't hold up year after year, unless it's a high quality cashmere or wool/wool blend which can get pricey. If you are looking to just partake in this trend for the season then you can be a bit more adventurous with the color, print and go for the lower priced items. Have fun!
