I have a massive soft spot for capes – especially the more flamboyant styles that bring a touch of wow to eveningwear. Sometimes considered a little constrictive on the arms, silhouettes have been changed up by designers opting for more fluid and freeing cuts. Look out for weekend-friendly quilted picks and true winter warmers that marry a fringed knitwear feel with a classic cape shape.
