I think I’m going to channel my inner superhero and invest in a cape this winter. Probably in a neutral tan colour or plaid. If I find one in a crazy tapestry/carpet pattern, a la Comme des Garcons, I might consider that too (although I’m not sure how practical that would be for every day wear). I was thinking about buying a cape last winter, but never took the leap. Anyway, here are a few of my favourite caped street-style looks. These ladies show that the cape is much more superchic than superhero.
