The new fall season has officially started and this is the perfect time to think about versatile wardrobe piece you should invest in. Using more or fewer layers, or replacing one layer but not others, allows for flexible clothing to match the needs of each situation. Two thin layers can be warmer yet lighter than one thick layer, because the air trapped between layers serves as thermal insulation. In case you have missed it, see our Style Guide: How to layer clothes?
So how to channel transeasonal layering? For the autumn’s statement look, we are thinking of ponchos, knits and capes as key to a stylish start of the new season. Recently we have seen them everywhere, from designer collections of Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Celine, TopShop Unique, and Burberry Prorsum to the campaigns and billboards of high-street brands such as Mango, H&M, Zara and Primark.
The perfect cape can easily become your favorite thing but there are a few styling tricks you should keep in mind. Since the cape has loose and draping fit you need to balance the proportions, so wear fitted tops or blouses, skinny jeans, leggings and pencil skirt with it. If your cape is monochromatic, feel free to wear cloths with more prints and patterns. For night out, go for your favorite pair of thigh-high boots and make stylish fashion statement.
