Caped crusader

I have always been drawn to quirky outerwear...

Opting for coloured, printed, fluffy, embellished over your drab everyday coat or mac. But my true love when it comes to coats is a 3/4 length sleeve beauty that enables me to indulge in as many long gloves as i can and embrace my penchant for layering....

There has been the pink faux Chanel jacket that saw me embrace silky gloves with pearl embellishment, the black cropped jacket that highlighted my purple leather dominatrix gloves. The 70's retro print jacket that looked Divine with my autumnal toned leather gloves and my 70's suede and Mongolian wool long length coat that went with every single one of my long length woolys...

But now i have my new favourite... the cape, I adore them they keep you warm but make you feel like a fashion superhero as you sashay around the shops. You can layer away underneath and still look super chic especially when you add a pair of oh so awesome studded or embellished gloves... ggrrrThese are £69.00 from Reiss.

Designer capes i love this season:
Marc Jacobs. wool cape jacket £1,070

Derek Lam's cashmere-blend cape £1,635.

Me styling out my lovely woolen zip front cape from Reiss (£125.00) in Copenhagen...
