Cape Love In Autumn

Capes are definitely in season and on trend right now, and there are so many styles to choose from! They are the perfect layering piece to throw on and quickly get out the door on a chilly day, and will always guarantee a classy look. I love a cape paired with calf or over-the-knee boots, a structured handbag and even a hat if it’s a rainy day.

The cape pictured is from Target (similar here) and came with a detachable faux fur collar, which I was excited about because I can style it with other outfits {wardrobe maximization!}. I also really like cape jackets with arm holes or slits (like here) and blanket scarves styled as capes (like here). J. Crew and Zara have some really nice cape styles that I’m crushing on right now!

I wore this outfit to work paired with “skinny” dress slacks with lots of stretch…a must-have to wear your high boots to work without violating dress code if your job requires business to business casual attire like mine. I snagged the gray suede boots while thrifting…they were brand new and only $6 bucks {total steal!}. This pretty little structured bordeaux bag is also a steal on sale at Kohl’s right now for under $40. I think I’ve convinced myself that burgundy (or wine red) is a neutral color for fall, and it’s a great pop of color paired with gray, black and tan!
