Buy A Cape Says Rachel Zoe: Fab Fall 2011 Trend!
Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe definitely has her pulse on the fashion scene. And today on GMA, she said that the cape is a must-have for Fall 2011!
Okay, some of you are thinking that capes are very-old lady-looking. But trust us, the cape has come a long way, and we have been seeing some very attractive shapes and styles for the open sleeve garment.
What you have to remember is---PROPORTION, and getting it right. For instance, if you are petite, a cropped cape won't swallow you up.
Think of a cape as another form of a jacket and wear one with your favorite skinny jeans or a flirty dress, for example. It's a versatile piece with a simple cut. And stylish celebs like Rachel Bilson have been photographed ahead of the trend stepping out in a cape as casual wear.
Plaid is hot again this autumn, and would look great in a cape. And don't forget that wool isn't the only fabric you will see. There are sweater capes,cotton ones, and flow-y florals, too. You will also see hooded capes and reversible capes. The list goes on.
It's the cape to the fashion rescue this fall. Don't be afraid to try a few on.
