Autumn/Winter 2010 Fashion Trend - The Cape

The cape has made a big comeback for Autumn/Winter 2010 and has been given a modern transformation as well. The cape coat has long been in and out of women’s fashion, but this season there has been a large backing by not only the premium designer houses, but the high street as well. Yes, the cape is about to become mainstream, and I think it is a perfect way to update your Autumn/Winter wardrobe this year.

The cape is fun, versatile and is THE ultimate “throw on and go” piece. This can be used in all your casual outfits these coming seasons and if you pick the right colour, it can easily be adapted to any trend you throw at it. For this reason I am recommending you pick timeless colours such as black, grey and navy or the new camel colours (which are a big trend piece). Try to keep detailing subtle, and it will allow you to pair it with any item you have in your wardrobe in order to create new outfits and looks on the fly as the new trends develop.

Capes on the Runways
As you can see below, many of the major premium designers featured capes in their A/W 10 previews. Below you will find examples from Alexander Wang, Etro, Missoni, Yves Saint Laurent, Celine, Rag & Bone, Jaeger London and many more. They came in all styles, shapes and sizes, which means there is bound to be one which matches your wardrobe and flatters your figure:

How to Wear!
While the runway looks above can provide inspiration to how to adapt trends to our wardrobe, often they are not accessible to the everyday woman’s sense of style or even body shape. However the cape is wonderfully versatile and can be paired with what you already have in your wardrobe. For day time looks, think about throwing the cape on over a simple top or knitwear should the weather be cold. Use skinny jeans, shorts, pencil, a-line or even mini skirts for your bottom half as they will all look great against the contrast of the cape’s volume on the top half. Cape coats create a really dramatic top heavy silhouette that cannot fail to be noticed.

If you want to add some chic for a nightime date or event, then simply throw your cape on over the top of a badydoll or statement dress, match with heels and clutch – you have an elegant look with has an added edge and high fashion feel to it. Plus it will subtly show off just enough flesh on your bottom half to keep eyes firmly on you.
