Trend Watch: The Cape Jacket

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have taken part in the recent discussion on my Instagram story, “to cape jacket, or not to cape jacket.” I solicited the advice of you, my oh-so-honest followers on your thoughts on a new piece of clothing I had recently acquired: the cape jacket. True to your usual form, you were vocal, expressive, and in no short supply of passionate opinions.

Who knew one little cape jacket could stir up such controversy?

Some of you hated it, most of you loved it. And a lot of you offered great suggestions on how to style it. LOVE that!

When asked if you wanted to see if go live on a blog post so you could shop it for yourself, the feedback was overwhelming. So, without further ado, here it is. The superhero/batman/dracula/cape jacket look that you so lovingly cheered me on to post. Details to shop are below!

      Thanks, Julie! I definitely warmed up to the cape and agree — it’s a great layering piece and an interesting coverup. Beats a cardigan, right?!

    Hands down, the cape jacket is my favorite trend for fall. The swingy silhouette of a cape combined with the tailored look of a jacket; What more could a girl ask for? This is the perfect transitional piece of outerwear to help carry you through autumn while channeling your inner cool girl.
