Fall 2014 Fashion Trend: You Don’t Have To Be Superman To Wear A Cape

 

During Fall and Winter, fashion is all about layers, luxe coats and cozy vibes. It’s the seasons that naturally allow for a richer, more luxurious way of dressing.

Each year, we see a new coat trend walk down the runway. Last year, it was all about over sized coats and bomber jackets, but this season’s hottest trend is something completely different: the cape. This fashion trend has had its moment before, but this fall the cape is back with a vengeance. It was seen on the runway with Valentino Ralph Lauren, Saint Lauren and The Row amongst others.

The cape has always been incredibly chic and this season it’s made even more glamorous as designers such as Daks and Ellie Saab have taken the cape to longer lengths, adding even more glamour. Others such as Ralph Lauren have added more volume at the back whilst keeping the front tailored. On the high street, we’ve seen a new twist with the blazer cape and a slimmer silhouette.

Paired with jeans, layered over a sweater, or draped over an evening dress, it instantly gives an updated look to any outfit.

It’s not just the designer collections that are embracing the cape. Models and fashion bloggers alike take the look straight off the runway and have made it their own from the high-street version, to the customizable cape-like Burbery Propsum poncho.
