Capes are such a major trend right now. Capes usually come in outerwear like jackets, sweaters and blazers. I know this is my third post on a blazer but it just shows how much I love them. When you take a blazer and combine it with a cape, it easily becomes one of my most favorite pieces. Since it is a blazer, it can be worn casual with jeans or you can dress it up with slacks and heels. This long length makes it so versatile. It can be worn with a simple cotton shirt or even a button up shirt. The shirt underneath should not be the same color as the cape because then it just looks messy and you actually look like you have 4 arms. Ha.
This specific cape is inspired by a blazer because it has a notched collar, 2 button closure and front pockets. It can be worn closed but the beauty of this cape is that it should be worn open. This is extra long in length which is great for when you are wearing more fitted pants or when you tuck your shirt in like how I did.
The elegant way a cape falls exudes laid back effortless style. This cape has shoulder pads like a proper blazer and at times I felt like it wasn’t fully sitting on my shoulders, but it just takes some getting used to. Some cape jackets are extra flowy and some are a little more straight. Being a blazer, this is a little more straight.

Blazer cape: Vince Camuto purchased at Macy’s. TheLimited is also selling tons of capes under their Scandal line.

Arabic Love shirt: Graffiti & Gold . This is a size Medium and has a standard feminine cut. I prefer loose tees, and so this medium is fine paired with the blazer over it.
