The colder months are the best times for accessorising, with an abundance of hats, scarves, mittens, boots and outerwear at our disposal. But if there was one piece that truly sets the tone for an autumn or winter outfit, it’s your coat. The editors of Bustle explain that we go through our personal fashion battles when we transition from warm to cold and vice versa, and for this time of the year, it’s about mastering the art of buying the perfect winter coat. There are plenty of outerwear styles to complement your everyday ensembles, and one of the coats that left many fashionistas with a lasting impression is the cape coat.
Today, we’re taking inspiration from the lovely Jennifer Garner, spotted a few weeks ago one evening in New York City looking glamorous as ever in a tuxedo cape, courtesy of Givenchy. As a Parisian couture house founded back in 1952, outlined by the editors that put together the Givenchy collection on Lyst, their cape coats are probably out of the price range for most of us. Thankfully, there are numerous brands out there that offer similar outerwear options at affordable rates.
So dress yourself up in this superhero silhouette this season and check out these styling tips to keep you chic all winter long:
With white trousers
If you’ve got a beige, cream, or any other light-coloured cape in your closet, wear them with your white skinny jeans. It’ll be a nice contrast from all the blacks and darker hues that are common during winter time. Try to match your shoes, top and other accessories with the colour of the coat to coordinate your outfit, or you can opt for a monochromatic ensemble, as pictured above.
With thigh-high boots
Just The Design reveals that the cape silhouette and over-the-knee boots is quite the popular pairing, as the height of the shoes marries well with the length of the coat. This combination gives you the freedom to maximise skirts, shorts, dresses and other summery items in the autumn and winter.
With your favourite blue jeans
One way to elevate a typical jeans and a t-shirt (or a jumper) outfit is by cuffing your jeans, and throwing on a cape coat and beautiful heels to match. This works especially well with printed capes, which allow you to have more fun with your casual winter getups. The more colourful your coat, the better and brighter you will look.
