Although I’m not seeing as many capes around now as I did last year, I’m still really fond of any item of clothing with a ‘caped’ element to it. Twitter followers from last year will remember I agonised over the purchase of a caped jacket from Reiss, which I featured in my Look of Today… series and now I’m still on the lookout for a caped coat. I love the AQUA jacket below but have I missed the boat with this style? Is anyone still wearing their capes from last year or are they back in the rear of your wardrobes, never glimpsing sunlight?
If you like a style that is “out of fashion” but you think suits you, should you still buy it?
The dress in this post was another of my purchases from the ASOS winter sale before I left England. I think it’s a cute dress (someone told me this word “cute” in America means sexy, here I am using its English meaning: delightful, dainty etc) to wear over jeans, tights (hose? See I’m a-learning America) or on it’s own. The photo above was taken in Central Park, Manhattan last Friday when the weather was almost Spring like and I took a beautiful walk around the meadows and lakes. I love its versatility and, obviously, the cape detail on the back. I’ve included some other “caped” items below.
