THE ULTIMATE FALL STATEMENT = CAPES

November 12, 2014 57 Permalink

If you love Fall then you should come to NYC right this instant because it is absolutely stunning and the different colored trees will simply take your breath away, especially if you love yellow, orange and red colors!

A trip to Central Park in the Fall called for my cape to be whipped out – yay!

I bought my first cape 4 years ago and it was like nothing I had ever worn. Then last year in Paris, I found this beauty and it was love at first sight…What do you think of my cape?

Because the cape is such a statement piece, it means you can keep everything else very simple.

I’ve paired the cape with a navy silk button down shirt and black dress shorts (I’ll feature these more prominently in a future post).

 Of course, I’ve got my trusty bowler hat on to jazz the outfit up for when I take off the cape.

Made out of wool and lined with silk, this cape keeps me warm whilst still being feminine and chic. Did you check out the deep pockets? That’s where my phone goes for easy access – woo hoo!

When it comes to bags with a cape, you want something you can either hold with your hand or is small enough to wear underneath the cape as you can’t wear handbags over the shoulder because the cape will be in your way. My small Mulberry bag is a perfect accessory for this outfit and it encourages you not to carry too much because of its size, which is wonderful!

Look at how many colors there are in the park! My heart was bursting with so much excitement and I couldn’t take off the huge smile across my face as we walked around.

Do you wear statement pieces like capes? What kind of things have you thought about wearing but haven’t yet built the courage to wear yet?

Love Naima x
