My favorite trends of the fall collections are capes. Who doesnt love a cape? Fairy tale characters like Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood had them. Superheroes like Batman and Superman sport them. Why shouldnt we?
Capes come in all different colors and sizes for so many occasions. Why do I bring this up when we’ve been having sunny weather in LA for the last few weeks? Forecasts predict rain/showers for Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Although you might not be able to get these designer pieces just yet, dont hesitate to invest in a quality cape to get you through the rain, wind, and whatever else might blow your way (like snow in NY!).

So many different variations of a camel coat: a play on color, fit/proportion, silhouette, and length. Its definitely a current obsession in the fashion world.. and why not? Its a breath of fresh color. Spring days are here but nights can still get a little bit.. “chilly”. Any fans? Which designer did it best?
Do you like yours with 1) trim, 2) leather paneling, 3) cape cuts, 4) fur, 5) short, 6) a darker color, or 6) classic?
