Embrace the Cape

Its THAT time of year again,when the outdoor temps start to dip but you’re just not quite ready to commit to wearing a full on winter coat. Enter..the Cape. The comfy and oh so style worthy cape is a mainstay in fashion and each and every season you have a plethora of styles to choose from at various price points.

I often get asked by clients how to style a cape and to that I say- there are options galore but when it comes to a cape “less is more” because quite frankly the cape is a statement piece, all on it’s own.

Here are a few suggestions to keep your cape style worthy and add a perfect pop to your outfit:

  1. If you’re opting for a plaid cape or one with a pattern ,keep the rest of your outfit in solid shades that compliment. The Cape will cover enough of your frame that you don’t want to detract from the fashion statement you’re making.
  2. If your cape is in a solid hue consider adding some amazing accessories to amp up the style and accentuate the cape. You can add an amazing brooch,stylish booties and one item with some sort of pattern i.e. blouse, pants, or even footwear. But keep the pattern play at one item  so you won’t  detract from the style statement of your cape.

Coat Craving…

I LOVE coats. One might almost say that I have a bit of a problem: “Hello, I’m Terri and I am a coat-aholic.” There are so many beautiful styles and shapes and colors to choose from … it’s easy to understand how any Glamour Girl could find herself with a major coat craving. If you happen to find yourself wanting one or two or all three of these gorgeous swing skirt coats ..perhaps you are also a candidate for the club. Just repeat after me…Hello, I’m______ and I am a coat-a holic.”

Fall’s First Coat….

I am a coat-a-holmic (if there were such a thing-which there isn’t –so I can keep my little “obsession” under the radar and continue my accumulation without an intervention). Being a coat-a-holic means that I love coats and I don’t discriminate whatsoever. If a coat has great style, fit and fabrication –wrap it up! My coat accumulation began while living in Chicago years ago. I now reside in Los Angeles where the temps rarely dip below 40 degrees… (Funny- how living in a warmer climate didn’t seem to diminish my desire for more coats).  My closet is filled to the tilt with an assortment of capes, faux furs, leathers, trenches(cotton, wool and satin)and cashmere.

With the arrival of fall, I send Glamour Girls wishes that you will find the perfect lightweight wool coat to put on as soon as the temps dip.

Don’t you just love the first fall coat of the season? Me too!
