Chic in a Cape Dress

If there is one piece of advice you should take away from my blog write ups it is this, invest in a cape! Covering your shoulders with a cape is the chicest way to do it. Whether it be in the form of a shirt, blazer, or cape dress, this wardrobe addition will effortlessly step up your style game.

As stylish as they may be, there is definitely a right and a wrong way to style a cape. To avoid the super hero look, show some skin. If you’re rocking over the knee boots, for example, gravitate towards a sleeveless under shirt and a cropped cape. Or, if you’re wearing a leg baring dress, consider a longline cape. It is all about the balance! Over the last couple of weeks, I have not left the house without a poncho or a cape. These garments undoubtedly make getting ready more enjoyable during the San Francisco fall “summer” weather.

The only thing better than a cape jacket is a cape dress. When I found this one from Asos, I knew I would get a lot of use out of it. The fall is packed with events in my husband’s industry and I always try to dress in business attire with a twist. This dress is perfect because from the back it looks like a long blazer, but turn around and BAM! The double breasted design with gold button closures are trendy as ever and the color is great for this time of year. I styled this piece with gold and gray accessories, although black would be a sharp contrast too.
