The Caped Crusader

Capes always look cool, but for many budding fashionistas they are tricky to pull off.  If you like the notion of sporting a cape, but are unsure of what to wear with one this post is for you.  Below are two alternatives for accessorizing your cape for both day and night.

For a chic twist on schoolgirl style, try a sporty high-cut cape that will show off a bright top underneath.  A mini keeps the proportion lean, not bulky.

Come evening, think a deconstructed tuxedo with slim pants and a silky blouse.  A shoulder bag will cause the cape to bunch, so opt for a satchel or box clutch instead.
