Fashion trends change as the season changes. So, since the new fall season is almost here you may want to get familiar with what will be in trend this fall. There will be several fashion trends you will love to pull off but today the focus will be on just one of them - the trend of wearing a cape.

Yes, fashionistas, capes will take over the stage in the upcoming months, so if you don’t have one, now is the time to get one and keep up with the latest fashion trends. They can be found in different styles, colors, and patterns, so you will for sure find the right one for your taste and body type.

Who can wear a cape?

They say capes may not be for everyone, but this is totally untrue. You can wear a cape as long as it is proportionate to your height and fits well. If you are pear-shaped, you can go for a blanket cape and wear it with a belt. If you are petite, you shouldn’t let the cape overtake you. And if you are a plus size - you should look for a cape that hits around the thigh area and helps to elongate your look.

Capes are the best choice for taller ladies and they can wear it in many different ways. It’s all in making it proportionate with your outfit. A long cape can be combined with narrow leg pants as well as with a shorter dress and a belt. And when it comes to accessories, a cape will look great with a fedora hat and a fancy handbag.

In terms of colors, you can find a cape in any color possible. A black cape can go well with everything. But if you want to make a bigger statement you should look for some bold color, like mustard, burgundy, emerald green etc., which are one of the most popular colors for fall time. Or you may even choose some patterned cape, for instance, a plaid one. Just remember that the key to wearing a patterned cape is to keep the rest of your look simple.

So, if you want to dress like a real fashionista, don’t miss to pull off a cape look this fall. It is one of the trendiest pieces of cloth for this season, so make sure you find the right style for you and wear it in the right fashionable way. And no worries, if you don’t know how to wear it, just scroll through your Instant search and get inspired from the many fashion bloggers.
