This fall is a great season to stock up on trends that are classic, and flattering to so many different body types. One trend I am adoring, and know will still look chic years from now is the return of the cape.
I know, many of you when you hear "cape" may think of Superman and
Sherlock Holmes. However, this fall's cape is far more elegant,
versatile and figure-flattering than a red satin or ankle-length number
famous made famous by your favorite storybook hero. A cape is a great
piece to wear during transitional weather--you can slip over a tee and
jeans for a trip to the market, over a suit or dress with ease, or use
it as a layering piece with a heavy sweater or fitted jacket for
additional warmth come winter. Capes work on slight and curvy frames,
petite and tall women, and will work even if you are between sizes (or expecting!).
Here are some of my favorite budget-friendly capes for this fall--styles that are kind to your figure, your lifestyle and your wallet.
