Jacket’s as capes; the debate.
I love this trend, completely and utterly love it. And although it’s a bit like marmite, unless you have been living under a rock during fashion week I’m sure you will have seen hoards of people wearing their jackets as capes. This trend has the amazing power to totally transform a person into looking nonchalant, and I’m eager to hear what you all think of it!
Although this trend may look laid back, pulling off ‘caping’ is easier said than done. Just from looking at how people have styled this trend, it is clear to see that clutch bags work best – for obvious reasons. Trying to hang the strap of your tote bag on your shoulder becomes a challenge. A challenge that you are more than likely going to lose. Instead, embrace your clutch bag! Also, since capes in general aren't the most shape flattering things to wear, balance this out by wearing fitted legwear to give a good proportion to your body.
Finally, don’t expect to get loads of compliments. Like I said in the beginning, this craze is like Rylan, modern art and adverts. You either love it or hate it. Some people just won’t like it or won’t get it.
But as long as you feel good carry your head high!
What are your thoughts on ‘caping’?
