Wrapped Up

November 22, 2010

One of my favorite pieces in my closet is my black Morphine Generation cape. While not easy to pair with everything, I find that whenever I wear it my level of chicness increases by a great degree. The only real issue with wearing a cape is figuring out how to  carry your handbag, which Garance Doré articulates beautifully in her recent blog post “My Cape” (see here). I’ve found that the best bags to carry while donning a cape are ones with short handles that can either rest on your wrist or be carried in your hand – anything else just hangs awkwardly or has to be hidden underneath the cape which just looks weird. So although not the most practical garment to wear (they’re not very warm either…), there’s no denying that capes look unwaveringly stylish. Like a sky-high pair of stilettos, a cape may not be very comfortable but it will always look good. All for the sake of fashion, right?
