Little Black Cape

Hi everyone, happy Tuesday! Hope you are enjoying your week :) After that massive snow dump last week, NYC is finally heading into some warmer early spring weather. I am super excited and for the first time in a long time, I no longer need to reach out for my puffer jacket to keep warm. During my trip back home to Melbourne, I brought along one of my recent fashion favorites - the cape coat. I tried one out during fall (see here) and loved it so much that I decided to pick up another one in a lighter material. This little black cape is more structured, so I decided to dress it up a little.

The cape coat is really an old fashion favorite, and I'm excited to see this trend continue. If you are a girl who enjoys a good sleeve on your clothes, don't be put off to give this piece a try. I suggest transitioning into one gently. Avoid a costumey look and go for colors that are more neutral (e.g., black/grey/brown/cream) to maximize utilization and versatility. The silhouette of the cape suits many body types. They are an easy, chic and effortless piece to add to your wardrobe.

I just realized that black has been the theme in recent posts :P This is a slight departure from my usual color choices. With Spring on its way, I can't wait to share more bold, floral prints and colors on the blog :)
