How to wear a cape and look chic
If you live in San Francisco, you know how different the weather can be in just one day and even one hour. Having a jacket, scarf or a cape is a must to keep warm when that wind picks up.
I fell in love with this fabulous cape by D’Clic designs the minute I saw it. It adds so much drama to your outfit, and it keeps you warm any time of the year. The quality and craftsmanship of this cape are just fabulous. I love the red lining, the leather hem details, and its thick jean material.
When coming up with a theme for this shoot I realized it was going to be drama all the way. My Assistant- Carol’s dog, Gunner, a handsome Weimaraner, was going to be the perfect companion. His noble look and stature fit the dramatic the look. I just love how the photos with the two of us turned out. We shot on a rooftop in the heart of the city which was a perfect background for this chic look.
I chose to wear all black underneath to highlight the eccentricity of the cape. The bright red lining became the focus and pops when styled with all black. Yes, capes can actually look sexy. You can wear it over a revealing long sleeve mesh body suit and contrast the flowy structure of the cape with a tailored skinny bottom. So I chose a pair of cropped black pants to go underneath, and pulled up the pants on my ankle to create a modern harem-like feel. It added the perfect edge and sophistication to the look.
Worried about losing your waist? Just throw on a belt wide enough to stand up to all the volume. But, this cape is rather structured and works well without it.
Accessories can be a huge deal breaker when choosing to wear a cape. I set it off with my current favorite bright red lips earrings and my own bright red lips:) Opt for a clutch rather than a shoulder bag that would slip off easily. My vintage magazine clutch was the perfect match and added a needed pop of color to the ensemble. Open toed booties finished off the outfit.
