Classically Caped



A cape has been on my mental wish list for quite some time.  But I had yet to find a style that I really loved and that I felt was both versatile & practical...until I came across this one, which met all of my requirements and more.  Because of the trench-like details and the neutral camel color, it's the perfect blend of classic & modern - I also love the detachable belt, which helps give a defined silhouette to what is typically a more voluminous piece.





What I'm wearing:
Ann Taylor sweater (on sale here), c/o SheInside cape coat (here), Gap jeans (on sale here), ShoeDazzle loafers (here), ALDO satchel (similar here or here), Express bracelet (similar), Dockers aviators (similar), Nails: Sally Hansen Right Said Red

That cape is fantastically gorgeous!! I love capes too but have yet to find the right one. I love the belt because it really does give a definite shape. You look gorgeous! Hope you had a great holiday weekend! <3

You look great in this outfit! The tan cape and black top are very slimming! The gold loafers remind me of a look I've seen on Atlantic-Pacific. Very chic. Happy holidays!

Did you purchase the cape from sheinside or was it given to you? I'm wondering because I love a lot of what that site offers but have read only negative reviews. Would like to know your thoughts/experience with that site.

Hi Nkauj,

As stated at the bottom of my post, the cape was "compliments of" Sheinside. I have been working with them for a few months now and have been pleased with the quality of all the items I've received. Though it does take a while to get your items (because they are being shipped internationally), I have never had a problem otherwise.

Hope that helps,
Kimberly

That's probably the most incredible cape I've ever seen....except for my mom's vintage cape...with very similar styling. My father bought it for her in the late 1970's and unfortunately, she sold it. I love it and was heartbroken.

I love the cape! I actually mostly love that you are wearing cuffed jeans and flats and a bun. You wear heels quite a lot, it's rather intimidating!
