Fall is the perfect time of year to “embrace the cape.”  It’s that little pocket of time between seasons when we have a release from the hot summer days and the cold winter months that loom ahead. You are finally free from peeling off layers of clothing to keep cool but still need a little bit of a cover up or extra layer to keep the chill off in the beautiful crisp Autumnal temperatures. Enter the cape. Capes have been forever-(since medieval  times to be exact). They may change fabrications and little design details through the decades but basically a cape is a cape is a cape. It lays on the shoulders ever so squarely, with a beautiful flowing drape down the body. It keeps your arms free and unconstricted and it’s so easy to put on and take off-it a no wonder that Batman embraced the cape for his quick entrances and exits. Capes have style and add a bit of flourish to any outfit. So if you haven’t embraced the cape until now perhaps this is the year to try on a cute cape.

The Black Cape has withstood the test of time. For years the black cape was a Halloween “go to item.” (When in doubt drape a black cape over  anything and everything to complete your costume or your serving table: Good Witch, Bad Witch, Sexy Witch or as a decorative cloth used over your Halloween table….you get the picture-it’s a multi-purpose Fashion Staple).

Today the black cape is bigger and better than ever-with oodles of ways to complete your look. Here are three high fashion options just to get you inspired.

 Have a happy and safe Halloween!
