How to Wear a Cape Jacket

The warm weather is finally here! Although here in New England we’re still dealing with a few cool days I can’t complain. Anything is better than cold weather.

My ever so stylish mother recently visited for my wedding dress shopping and in her usual fashion she brought some fab clothing items for me. One of my favorites was this white Cape Jacket. I wore it with white pants for my Baptism in April and will be wearing it a lot this summer.

Cape Jackets are one of those fashion items that you either love or hate, but if like me you love to experiment and have fun with outfits then you will love it. There is something very stylish and sleek about this look.

When shopping for a Cape Jacket, solid colors are the way to go. Start with a white or black one and go with other colors down the line. I love the combination of skinny pants with a cape blazer. I would say that don’t ever wear them with loose fitting clothing to avoid looking frumpy. For example a Cape Jacket will always look good with skinny pants and pencil skirts instead of a maxi skirt or baggy pants.

To complete a Cape Jacket look, add some accessories. Just remember not to go too crazy with the accessories. A few pieces like a watch, thin bracelets and a statement necklace will do the trick. For shoes you can go with a pointy toe heel which always looks fab paired with a cape jacket and skinny pants. For this look I went with black strappy heels, which worked perfectly.
