Wonder how to get that stunning catwalk style? Here´s how to translate runway looks to the street.
Cape, whether hooded or collared, woolen or silk, is another statement piece which can revitalize your fall wardrobe. Although not a key item, a cape is your go-to outerwear on transitional days when you feel like strutting your stuff like a diva. From my personal experience, I found that even on days when I feel down, opting for a diva-material from my closet can quickly alter the mood.

THE RUNWAY: Oscar de la Renta, Fall 2013
Cape as a fall favorite is given a twist by creating it in silk material, embroidered, and completed with long hood and toggle. It´s perfect to contrast the tough look of leather skinny pants.

Investment cape coats
The more expensive your cape is, the cleaner the lines are. If you´re to invest on a cape, make sure that it will last for years and survive many seasons. Look for clean silhouettes, on-trend but effortlessly simple, and in color that blends with anything in your closet.

Within this price range, there´s a plethora of interesting options for you. Put your hands on a graceful vintage-inspired checked cape, or a deep blue tweed overcoat. How about a toggle woolen cape for very chilly days? Worn with an A-line skirt or skinny pants, a pair of slim tall boots or pointed toe ankle boots are perfect to complete the look.
