Put a cape on it!

Who says capes are only for superheros and magicians? Capes, long shirts and long cardigans are the new trends in town, making us feel like we are all superwomen! Although I don’t really follow trends, I’m totally loving capes and how dramatic they look on any simple outfit. They seem to be everywhere, right from the ramp at fashion week to high street retail brands. Personally I feel there are so many possible ways to style them, given the kind of variety you have in the lengths, fabric and silhouette. 
For this look I picked the most basic long cape/shirt dress. After a burst of colorful outfits on the blog, I wanted to keep it muted in black, grey and white with hints of gold. This can be styled as a shirt dress with a belt over it, under a printed maxi skirt, over shorts and a tee to name a few ideas. So show me how you would style a cape by tagging me on instagram (@thegirlatfirstavenue). Meanwhile I’m off to superwoman things!
