If we could only buy one thing this season what would it be, you ask? First, let us just stop and say thanks for bringing out the big guns on a Monday morning. And second, we know it’s saying a lot but if our fall got limited to one singular garment our must have item would be a cape. There’s something about draping a giant square of wool over your shoulders that just screams throw-on-and-go chic. That and we can’t think of any one other singular piece that could update our fall wardrobe in the same way and we can only buy one thing, remember? We didn’t make the rules, you did. So a cape it is.
We dipped our toes into the caped crusaders closet back in 2010 when they made their first go of it, but this time around we have our hearts set on both comfortable and more structured options. Luckily for us, Asos has quite the assortment of wrap-around capes at a price point that would allow us to buy several and still be able to eat dinner (see below). What? You said one item, not only one of that item and we are going to need one for traveling, lunch dates and casual strolls around the park. That’s at least three. Oh, and we also want something a little more structured (like this black cape from Vince Camuto). Somewhere between a blazer and a poncho. It’s like the perfect blend of everything we love and stand for when it comes to a wardrobe. How could we not need this? So what are we at now? Four? That should do it.
cape: Burberry (a less expensive option here, here, here and here) / top: Josie (similar here, here and here) / jeans: RtA (we also really want these for fall) / boots: c/o Skechers / handbag: Louis Vuitton (similar here and here) / belt: Hermes (similar here) / rings: similar here / nail polish: Tom Ford “Smoke Red”
