Trend Alert: Caped Crusaders

I have one friend who always loved capes. She sported an awesome black vintage one in the dead of winter before they were even trendy — though they are sort of classic — and she looked immaculate. She would wear it with black skinnies and vintage shoes, to give the cape some street cred. So, for those not ready to be a caped crusader you can do as my friend did or go minimal like at Jil Sander. Or, you can make up a mysterious look all your own — always encouraged.

Lmao, I HAVE to show this to a girl in my school, Adrienne. It was Civvies Day today and she decided she'd like to wear a cape.

Burberry makes some really great ones too. Their capes are of amazing quality and are beautiful.

I love capes and have about 9 or 10. I've been wearing them for about 4 years. I don't know if I want to wear mine now that everyone has started to. :(

I love capes, there is something so mysterious about them. I have a hard time finding one that doesn't swallow me whole!

Delia's has a great camel colored capelet on sale, I've been thinking of ordering it. They have such a retro glam flair.
