20 Fall Capes For Every Budget


Fall is my favourite time of the year — sartorially and otherwise. And I’m so glad to see winter wear slowly making its way to the stores. High time too, considering I need to start stocking up for the cooler climes ahead.

And one of the first things I’m going to lay my hands on this season is a really good cape. Capes are the new jackets for fall, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s amazing how one chic garment can add so much drama to your entire ensemble. I can probably achieve it all in the style department just by sporting this spiffy piece. But wait. The best is yet to come. You can team a cape with a pair of denims, dressy shorts, or work it with a maxi dress and boots, it’s such a VERSATILE garment.

Can’t wait to get in on the cape trend? I’m here to help. Scroll through for my top picks of the best capes for every budget. From casual ones to dressy drama, there’s something for everyone here!


Casual Chic

Let’s start with casual capes first. As the season starts to cool and air-conditioned offices get that much more chilly, I suggest putting on a fabulous cape over your go-to denims, a white vest and block-heeled shoes. Give Friday dressing a dramatic twist, why don’t you?
