What's new Wednesday: Capes

Fall starts today and there is a crisp chill in the air. So, what will keep you warm in the months ahead? A cape, of course! This very chic and au courant style is a perfect update to any wardrobe. There are a myriad of shapes, colors and patterns from which to choose: long, cropped, minimalist, cozy, black, shades of tan, plaid and tweed. Take your pick!

A note on fit: If you are short, like me, look for a tailored cape that is shorter in length. As much as I would LOVE to pull off the L'Agence cape below, there is far too much fabric, even with hemming. Enjoy!
