With Halloween just a week away, I can’t help but think of superheroes this time of year. Superman, Batman, even the fabulous Wonder Woman herself all wore fierce uniforms when they transformed into their alter egos, so it’s no wonder trick-or-treaters young and old would jump at the opportunity to don a similar ensemble for the festive holiday. But aside from their superpowers, the item I most envied about said superheroes was their capes. Lucky for me, plenty of designers are giving shoppers the chance at having their superhero moment as capes have made it into many of the cold-weather collections this year. So here are a few pieces I wish were keeping my shoulders warm this fall and winter:
Get more bang for your buck with this stunning reversible cape from Lafayette 148 New York. Wear it belted or let it hang loose over a mustard-colored sweater or classic black turtleneck:
Be show-stopper at your next red-carpet event or black tie affair with this luxurious beaded cape from Stella McCartney. A worthy investment for any socialite’s wardrobe:
For a more classic look, opt for this neutral plaid palette from Cole Haan. With a shearling collar, it would be the perfect piece to throw in your overnight bag for a weekend visit to the mountains:
Add a pop of Holiday color to your ensemble with this classic Maisie Cape in cherry red from Anthropologie. The button details, flattering cut and reasonable price tag make this cape a must-have for any fashionista:
Finally, be flirty and fashion-forward in this gorgeous faux fur and feather creation by Juicy Couture. Dress it up with a pair of leather pants and billowy blouse or dress it down with a classic pair of dark denim skinnies and an oatmeal long-sleeve tee:
So as the temperatures begin to drop, channel your inner superhero and stay warm this fall and winter in a cape!
