It’s official: capes are the new jacket this season. It all began with Christopher Bailey’s infamous monogrammed Burberry Prorsum blanket poncho last year, and it seems many designers have followed suit and have given the traditional jacket a shrug in favor of drapey outerwear. On the runways, a dramatic hooded black cape closed the show at Lanvin, while military-inspired coat-cape hybrids were spotted at Chloe. Falling in love with the trend? Here are 6 ways to jump on the cape trend this season.
1. Cejon Flyaway Vest, $54.97
3. ZARA Checked Coat, $249
5. TOPSHOP Faux Fur Collar Neat Cape, $170
