The Mysterious Black Cape

All hail for the black cape trend! Who would have thought? I’m so excited to have this fashion element back in trend. I was already drooling when Elie Saab starting introducing it to his couture shows a couple of years ago. And here it is now in every high-street shop! I love that the cape is being taken to several levels: the classic blazer with cape sleeves, the simple top with cape sleeves, the little dress with cape sleeves, etc.

The classic cape blazer stays my favorite. I love how it exudes elegance and mystery at the same time.

Style tips to rock the trend:

1. Always keep the bottom of your outfit very clean.
2. Avoid flare skirts and oversized skirts, it will make you look wider since the cape sleeves are wide and a little floaty.
3. Pencil skirts, skinny jeans, flared pants work perfectly with this trend.
4. Always accessorize: statement necklace or beaded clutch would look gorgeous.

I am wearing: long sleeves Vince blouse, black blazer with cape sleeves from Zara, blue skinny jeans from 7 For All Mankind, colorful pigalle pumps from Louboutin and a Chanel boy bag in yellow, medium size.
