Swing Into The Season With Our Favorite Cape Coats

You may have a peacoat, a denim jacket, and maybe even a favorite leather option, but even with a buffet of outerwear at your disposal, a fashion-forward cape may be something missing in your closet. That should change, because not only is a cape a dramatic and show-stealing piece, it’s easier than ever to snag one right now. Mall standbys and high-end designers alike are giving women a slew of options when it comes to the swingy, swishy topper. And for anyone who thinks that they’re too out-there, look closer. A cape is really just a peacoat with a little bit of pizzazz. Wear one over anything — really, we’re not exaggerating this time — to add a dash of fashion clout.

We’ve picked our favorites in basic black to give anyone with fashion trepidation an easy way to try out the trend. But don’t look at is as a challenge. Instead, consider the cape as much of a standby as all of your other go-to fall pieces. With choices that range from fast-fashion to investment-worthy, anyone can get in on this playful, evergreen style.
