Cape Crusades

One of my favorite ways to layer up for the fall is with a cape or poncho. 
Both styles always catch my eye in street style photography and more
recently on chic New York ladies here in my area. I love that this look
has had staying power for several seasons already; it’s easy to see
why~ ponchos and capes are as stylish as they are practical and

Burberry’s sold out blanket poncho is very “of the moment,” but I prefer a more streamlined look. I’ve featured a few of my favorites here today. From cape coats to blouses and blazers with “cape like” sleeves and of course, my favorite ~ the sweater poncho ( I love the way Olivia Palermo accessorized hers with these fab over the knee boots) Easy to wear, warm and chic. Happy Fall!

P.S.  this poncho from last fall is still a “go to” favorite.

  4. I actually love all of these looks….not only do they look great but I imagine being hands free makes them super practical (a big bonus). Great look!
