You Don’t Need to Be a Superhero to Rock a Cape This Fall

Last fall and winter everyone jumped on the outsize puffer craze. This time around, those bulky, padded coats are taking a back seat to not-so-classic capes.

The versatile cloaks have gone through an incredible transformation courtesy of the Fall 2019 runways. Sure, we still love our checked Burberry versions, but more and more brands are putting unique spins on capes. From fringed ones to trench styles and even caped sweaters, the silhouette is fall’s biggest sartorial weapon. Wear it over your basic white tee and jeans on a lazy Sunday morning. Or wear it to the office to look cool while staying warm.

Here are some of the chicest capes around.
