The Coat Guide, 1. the cape

Bonjour everybody <3
I’m sorry for the long absence but I have had lots of projects to do for my exams, including accessories design, textile design and illustration, and I’m going to share these works with you all next days.

So, let’s go ahead with more Tenues du Jour, precisely, let’s deal with coats.
Wintertime outerwear as jackets and coats are the most cannot-be-renounced pieces in the closet, but pay attention: they don't have just to cover our outfit, they have to update and emphasize it and vice versa; therefore they deserve a specific guide to wear and accessorize them properly.


Capes are indeed the trans seasonal coverup that dominated the FW12 runways: they are smart, flawless and impressive even for cocktail time and evening.
But what’s the secret of this great outerwear? Layer it! 
Wear your cape of course with skinny pants to balance the whole silhouette and straighten yourself up with skyhigh patent leather pumps for a chic texture contrast.
