Coats are a reflection of your inner style. They´re not just necessities, they´re also a fashion statement that immediately grabs attention. Some coats are classic and elegant, some are cool and edgy, while others are cozy and comfortable. But when we speak of glamorous coats, we´re speaking cape coats – your extraordinary, very stylish coat.
Cape coat is a sleeveless style coat that can have armholes. It can be belted or have a hood. Here are 3 tips to help you style haute-ly your cape coat.
Work with Bright Colors
Quickly turn heads with a vibrant cape coat. Not only are you wearing a trendy style, you´re also wearing a trendy color. Just like Gossip Girl Blair wearing a bright green cape coat with yellow pumps and yellow handbag, plus that peek of gray on her sleeves and a dotted gray scarf, you can also wear this exact look or create your version – bright colors of the same family such as a purple cape coat with pastel pink pumps and pink handbag.
Work with Neutrals
A very elegant take on wearing cape coat is by creating a blend of neutrals – brown cape coat, black shorts or pants, leopard print booties, and even a pair of muted sunglasses. Inject some tease through a yellow turtleneck pullover. This look doesn´t have to be in exactly in the same order. You can as well wear an animal print jacket coat with black shorts and nude ankle boots.
Work with Long Lines
Elongate your vertical silhouette by creating an outfit that´s a mix of long lines. Choose a long cape coat in basic color and then pair it with flared colored jeans that hit around the toes. The vertical line from the top continues to the bottom making you look taller. If you´re naturally tall, you wear flats. But if you´re like me who needs the help of towering heels, slip into heeled ankle boots. Finally, throw over a hat that speaks lots of attitude.
So tell me Creative Fashionistas, which of the looks above with cape coat do you see yourself mimicking? How do your wear cape coat? What are the other new ways to wear colored jeans?
