Over the past year Anna Wintour has given a new lease of life to the off the shoulder coat look – paving the way for the rise of the ‘cape’. From on the catwalk at Ralph Lauren, to on the shoulders of style queen Miroslava Duma; the cape has become the staple item of the season and the trend is very much here to stay!
Capes are all about being bold - transforming the most simple of outfits into a real head turning ensemble. Not to mention it is a great way to layer up in the temperamental British weather!
Lydia Rose Bright is a super fan of our capes, seen recently in the Khaki Collarless Cape Coat. Partnered with a zip front LBD and stiletto heels, the TOWIE star was effortlessly elegant ahead of her night out in Camden. The khaki cape oozes sophistication, whilst tending to the need for practicality with its cut out arms for an uber tailored aesthetic.
Lydia previously rocked the androgynous look on ITV This Morning in our Navy Collarless Cape Blazer, matching Navy Crossover D-Ring Peg Leg Trousers and a crisp white shirt. We also spotted Miss Bright wowing in the Black & White Distorted Stripe Collarless Cape Blazer and Black & White Distorted Stripe Print Wide Leg Culottes, teamed with a red lip and super sleek locks.
Our Black & White Distorted Stripe Collarless Cape Blazer is a perfect mix of sass and class, so there is no wonder Denise Van Outen also opted for the same unstoppable matching duo at the 50 Shades of Grey premiere last month.
Katie Price showcased her love for the cape looking ever so chic alongside Lady Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, at the Cheltenham Races in our Navy Collarless Cape Blazer, proving you can still look totally trendy in a cover up designed for cooler temperatures. Michelle Keegan strutted her way to stylishness in our Black Collarless Cape Blazer in a recent all black everything outfit. Jessica Wright also made a statement in our stunning Stone Collarless Cape Blazer and Stone Fold Detail Tailored Shorts combo.
A major plus for the cape is its versatility. Paired with tailored pants, shorts or culottes it can be dressed up with a pair of heels for a smart evening look, or dressed down with some super cool slides for a mid day lunch date. A sleek leather tote or a cute fluffy clutch is also a perfect way to add your own personality to the mix!
Whether you are looking to up your outfit sophistication, or are daring to bare a little more skin as Spring slowly begins to creep in – the Lavish Alice cape is perfect for you! Fix up, look sharp today and grab this season’s must have item on our dedicated Cape section.
