To Cape it All Off – Still a Trend for Winter 2017

How do you approach winter clothes shopping? Do you plan or just buy garments when you see it? a planner, and try to avoid impulse purchases that don’t fit into my palette, or have on trend prints or anything else that means that it won’t mix and match with the other items in my closet. 

Being a planner, I avoid impulse purchases that don’t fit into my palette. Prints and patterns are kept to a minimum. Avoiding anything that it won’t mix and match with the other items in my closet prevents buyer remorse.

I am currently rationalising my winter clothes, as I am a smaller size than I was last winter. I am on the hunt for the perfect cream and/or peach and/or black cape jacket for this window (I’ll probably get obsessed and buy one in each colour. Below are some cape jackets that I discovered in my hunt. Surprisingly the least expensive option from boohoo.com.au was my pick.

 

Burberry Military Cape Jacket ($2,595)

There appears to be a lot of military styles, replicated by the mass market chains, such as Zara and Forever New, with one less digit in the price. I love to what the Haute Couture shows. 

 DABUWAWA BLUE Black Stand Collar Wool Blend Embroidered Elegant Poncho And Cape
DABUWAWA BLUE Black Stand Collar Wool Blend Embroidered Elegant Poncho And Cape $505.27

I couldn’t resist the OTT embellishments of this little number. Probably a little overdressed for the ferry ride to work.

ALana Cape Coat by Forever New $149AUD

This Forever New Jacket is very pretty. The colour is perfect and exactly what I am looking for. I’ve always found that Forever New is pretty good on price for “entry level” fashion and style, and they do a respectable job of replicating the trends from the runways.

Seduce Dakota Cape $149.95 AUD

A surprise for me is Bardot, which is normally a budget range. This looks really lovely, and I’ll be heading in-store to try it one on.

Cue Stand Collar Cape Jacket $391.20 AUD
Cue Stand Collar Cape Jacket $391.20 AUD

This Cue cape looks very warm. I’d only wear this in deep winter. I might only wear it a few times a year. But then again. I may have it for many years.

Cue Melange Cape Jacket $367.20 AUD

Sheike CHATEAU CAPE $149.95
CHATEAU CAPE $149.95 at Sheike

The Sheike Chateau is such a crisp, trans-seasonal garment. The price point is pretty too.

Pink and Peach

Pink and peach are so big in Winter 2017. Lucky for me they are also my colours.

Sheike EVIE CAPE $139.95

Ah velvet. Such a gorgeous texture to bring diversity into the wardrobe. Won’t deviated from the palette in my Capsule Wardrobe.

Boo Hoo Mia Cape Blazer $32.00
Mia Blazer $32.00  from Boo Hoo

Funny thing it, so far this is my favourite, and so affordable.

The peach colour is adorable. The price and the clean lines help as well. I’m also betting that it doesn’t need ironing.

Dreaming of Luxury #capegoals

Yes, folks, you didn’t read the price incorrectly. I had to include this gorgeous cape. Even though this is way out of my price range, I fell in love. It’s a bit like a crush on a celebrity. Unfortunately, there will be no steamy love affair with this YSL cape, I will have to admire from a distance.
