Cape Crusader

Oh what a wonderful autumnal day...  Cold enough to warrant me wearing my new cape, dry enough to ensure that the 100% wool content isn't tainted by any raindrops.  If you haven't considered this item for your autumnal wardrobe then get to the shops now and enjoy being a trendsetter.
The main things to consider when trying capes:
  • is the colour in my colour palette?
  • does the length ensure that the cape sits on my knees or above?  * This IS a fashion garment, not to be mistaken with the rain coats worn by coach drivers in BBC Victorian dramas.
  • is there ANY tailoring? Capes have the potential to make us look wide but pockets, collars and tailoring will allow "the cape to drape", not drown....
