Capes are very in right now, and Kate and Pippa are diving into the trend. Pippa owns a handful of different capes in different colors, wearing them with skirts, jeans, and dresses to everywhere from the grocery store to a hot night out with Nico. Kate has worn her cape on a few shopping trips last winter, and is fond of Cape’s sister, Shawl. The cape and the shawl are the perfect piece in this transitional weather time – still winter, but feeling like spring in coming.
Kate is partial to classic styles – ruffle trim shawls, plaid capes, simple styles and timeless colors. Pippa leans towards bold and trendy – big buttons, fun styles, and chic ensembles. For an easy day-to-day style, pair a long sleeved sweater, skinny jeans, and boots with a plaid cape or a sweater, jeans and flats with a shawl effortlessly draped over your shoulders. Trying to dress up for evening? Pair a fitted dress (think pencil skirt or shift dress) with a trendy cape or shawl for a trendy-yet-mysterious look.
