Style: a CAPE for all seasons

and all reasonsboxofstyle8

A CAPE packs a lot of punch into your overall wardrobe any time of the year.  Especially the super soft and flattering graphic black + white cape found in the Zoe Report (as in Rachel Zoe) Fall Box of Style.

The good news is that every body type can wear one which makes it impressively versatile. The styling possibilities are endless. Wear it as a shawl, a scarf or even belted at the waist. There are No rules!  Perfect to travel with and use as a cover on the plane or dress it up for evening. There is no bad news.

A few more styling ideas:

Style tip: Stave off the fall chill in style like Hallie, who classically drapes her cape over a luxe top.fallbox1

Style tip: Put a unique twist on the cape à la Alison, who wears it as a cozy yet chic scarf.fallbox2

Style tip: Fashion meets function. Make like Marina and cinch your cape at the waist with the B-low The Belt wrap belt.fallbox3

Style tip: Take a cue from Ashley and add some edge to the ultra-luxe cape by pairing it with the B-low The Belt wrap belt worn as an of-the-moment choker.fallbox4

Style tip: Play up the flirty vibe as Emily does, by teaming the cape with a satin slip dress and a statement-making hat.fallbox5

There’s something chic about wearing a cape.  At this time of year it’s not a constant but for in between the wet and very cold weather for those “off days” you can certainly pull it off (or on).  cape1
I think it’s a must in a woman’s wardrobe.cape5
On the Autumn/Winter 2014 catwalk scene capes were coveted in a big way – check the Burberry (think trench and blanket style), Saint Laurent (tartan button-down) and Valentino (embroidered, shin-length) shows for a heads up on how to wear yours.cape3

And as a serious style maven, it’s no surprise that Sarah Jessica Parker got her hands on one of Burberry’s much sought after monogrammed capes. cape8cape4rl
