There’s a reason superheroes wear capes. There’s just something magical about them. But what is the source of the mojo that capes have, enabling them to pull together an outfit (even one consisting of torn jeans— which I cannot get enough of these days, a simple blouse, and suede booties)? It’s mysterious, and yet it is undeniable. Capes just make an outfit. There, I said it.
I’d had my eye on this one since it walked down the runway, and I knew it was so special it would pull together a thousand outfits this fall and winter. It’s already proving me right. I’m pretty sure if you wore nothing under your cape, you’d still look pretty smashing. But that’s just a guess.
