Femme Military Cape
It’s been a while since I have done a Musing of the Day post but trust me, I am still a fiend and window shop online every chance I get. Lately something that would have probably made my stomach turn years ago has been the subject of one of my most recent obsessions – ponchos (a.k.a. a cape if the word poncho doesn’t sound chic enough). I have been seeing them more often than usual on the streets of NYC and the women that I have spotted wearing the capes, all the way from a light knit to a heavier jacket form, do it more justice than any of the pictures I harpooned online. Currently I am looking for an affordable poncho to wear with a pair of skinnies or leggings and some killer boots. I also love the way shopbop styled the Rebecca Taylor coat, worn over a mini dress with stockings and a pair of booties. There is a lot of inspiration to choose from and it is a style I would rock during the evening to add a bit of mystery.
Are you a fan of capes or are they just a little too Little Red Riding Hood for you?
