Fall/Winter ’10 Trends. The Great Es-Cape

September 2, 2010 • Fashion


If you've scanned any headline all summer on the "It" items for fall, chances are the cape was at the top of the list. An outerwear staple for the transition from breezy to chilly to downright frosty, the cape provides the ideal amount of snuggly coverage without weighing you down as much as an overcoat. And the best part is—there are so many gorgeous styles to choose from! A tailored peacoat shape is always a classic, especially when dressed up with oversized buttons for that undeniable Sherlock Holmes look. Army green and blousy sleeves are the perfect marriage of current and timeless. And for those who dare to be bold—envelope yourself in a sunset print, embellished epaulets, or even a showstopping fur collar. Anyway you swing it, the cape is the last word in this season's definition of chic.

    Ah I love a good cape! Makes me feel like a superhero! I have one like #7. Glad to see I can get another season of wear. But, I really love the Alice + Olivia one (5). Great picks!
