Transform Your Look With a Dramatic Cape
The series of winter essentials continues. Today, we discuss a dramatic cape. A dramatic cape is something that is needed in your wardrobe when you want to stay warm but also make an attention-getting entrance.
A cape is both very elegant and practical; it’s bold and electrifying and completely enhances a look. When wearing a cape the perfect combination is pairing a dramatic cape with an evening dress; it’s a majestic way to add drama. Imagine this outfit with a long coat, instead of a cape; it has a completely different feel to it because a cape is unique while a coat is common.
The rich palette also plays a major role in this luxurious look. When selecting your own truly dramatic cape avoid a neutral color unless bold color isn’t your style. Still, I suggest venturing out and purchasing an alluring hue.
The cape I’m wearing in this outfit is a marvelous blue and gold is its perfect match. These two colors have a symbiotic relationship. The gold and blue don’t detract from each other but on the contrary work together to create a stunning ensemble. Also, the lining in this cape is a vivid royal purple. There’s something about a well made cape that sheer bliss.
How to Wear a Cape
When wearing a cape make sure the outfit underneath form fitting. Wearing something loose or baggy underneath will completely take away all of your flair. You can’t wear a large loose cape over large loose clothes; you will completely lose your figure.
Most of the capes that are sold are one size fits all. The cape I’ve worn before and the one in this outfit don’t have specific sizes they are meant to fit woman who are either short or tall.
I can’t wait to hear from you! How do you feel about capes?

PS. It was a lovely coincidence that my nail polish matched the inner lining of the cape.
