The golden autumn is over. From the beginning of November, light coats and raincoats will return to their place in the closet until spring. It's time to warm up in fashion and talk in more detail about capes - sleeveless capes, similar to Little Red Riding Hood's raincoat, the popularity of which was decided last February, at Fashion Weeks. Fairy-tale and folklore themes, the popularity of historical references in the collections of recent years involuntarily make one look at this garment as fashionable, but rather teenage and, in general, frivolous, but this is too one-sided approach to the topic.
Firstly, the cape is one of the most popular pieces in the spirit of the 60s, a real vintage with a touch of classics. Particularly popular were brightly colored bell and A-line coats, as well as short capes with contrasting hand-cut trims. There were also used capes, cloaks of amazing shapes - up to a flattened circle, - train collars and shawl collars. Secondly, unlike children's doll dresses and costumes in the biba-girls style, the cape has no age and no halo of established stamps. It does not make you look fat, does not make it heavier, does not emphasize the shortcomings of proportions and height, and with the right length and color, it will decorate any figure.
Thirdly, the popularity of the cape did not end with the beginning of the 70s, which Hedi Slimane transparently hinted at, diluting the Saint Laurent catwalk with sleeveless capes, dazzled with military jackets and leather jackets and jackets. Fourth, you do not have to enter into your wardrobe just a long coat with a hood, trimmed with fur, fringe or embroidery, like Dolce & Gabbana. Your ideal option may well be more like a poncho or a wide stole, well draped over the shoulders. In addition, this is a great way to warm and unusually update your favorite, but too thin coat for late autumn.
Finally, do not forget that Christmas and New Year are just around the corner, and during the marathon of festive corporate events and parties, you will need not only to warm up, but also to demonstrate elegance and a subtle understanding of luxury. A cape collar or a cape-train, attached to a solemn dress in the fall and winter of 2014, makes it possible not only to stand out from the crowd of guests, but to try on a royal robe. Even for a wedding dress in the last months of the year, Temperley London does not recommend a fur jacket or a fur coat, but a cape - a thing that has not had time to become commonplace.
