Style Ideas. The Caped Crusader. Second City Style Fashion Blog

November 9, 2007 • Fashion

Carol informed me she watched a segment on capes on yesterday’s Oprah (remember it’s the law to watch Oprah in Chicago). Actually the episode was dedicated to flattering looks for all ages. Capes are not just for old ladies anymore. They are the perfect weather transition outerwear piece and if you are larger on top, you can hide it with a cape. I love the look belted for waist definition. What a great statement piece with skinny jeans tucked into killer boots! Even if you are having a fat day, you will look totally chic and nobody will be the wiser. In fact, I think I just convinced myself to purchase one, so let’s go shopping!
