I popped around the shops yesterday, and was strangely, consistently drawn to pieces with batwing detailing or capes. At 5"1, I hadn't even thought about buying in to the cape trend the season, because I just assumed they would drown me, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a few cape-trend inspired pieces! Mostly from Topshop, as you can see, we didn't go into many stores! I seriously love the Topshop Flower Print kimono style cape top, it's made of the most perfect loose, jersey material! I also quite like Zara's sweatshirt cape, it errs on being a little chavvy, but it is lengthy enough and a gorgeous colour!
Then, we went to New Look, while I'll admit is not my favourite high street brand. I find the clothing in there hardly suits me, and is getting a bit overpriced? Damn those rising cotton prices! But I saw this adorable little wool blend cape coat, tried it on... And I'm in love. SO much want. But sadly, that is all it'll come to, as I can't buy another winter coat right now!
P.S. On the (extreme) other hand, how horrendous are these cape sleeved hooded jackets?! I'm ashamed of ya Topshop!
P.P.S. I've just hit the point where I've used the word 'cape' so many times, it doesn't sound like a word anymore. Ooops.
