Fresh Picks to Follow: The Dramatic Cape

I’m so happy that it’s Friday everyone because I have been looking forward to this weekend for a couple of months.  I signed up for the Marine Corps half marathon at the end of August and it’s finally time to run.  I have been training for the past couple of months and I’m ready for all 13.1 miles.  I’ll post a race-recap about it very soon. 

Anyways, this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow was inspired by Pamela from Ginger Girl when she wore an old beautiful cape from Anthropologie.  The cape is making a comeback this fall and it’s been called one of the must haves for the season.  I have to say that I never really paid attention to this trend over the past couple years.  Capes reminds me a little of a combination of the fairy tale - “Little Red Riding Hood” and the super hero - “Superwoman.” However, the capes that are designed today are much more than a flowy piece of fabric with a neck tie made famous by our favorite storybook characters.  Today’s capes are far more elegant, versatile and figure-flattering. They come in various fabrics, sizes and colors - from cashmere to wool, ankle length to knee length, camel to fall colors or plaids.  What I love about the cape is that it is both stylish and it looks comfortable. The cape is a great accessory to wear with any outfit as an alternative to a jacket.  I plan to try to try on some capes to see if this item is something I need in my wardrobe.  I do live in Florida after all.  Check out my top 10 capes for this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow.  Let me know what you think.  Do you plan on buying a cape or do you already own one?
