Hey dear metroholicas,
As the cool and fresh breezes have started to blow after the beautiful rains, this is warning for all of to start shopping for winters, Yup they are about to arrive.
The biggest trend which we will see whole winter season is the “cape”. Cape has made a huge comeback the fall/winter season of 2010-2011. It was seen the most on almost every ramp.
Cape was first invented in 19th century but they were not able to hit the ramps and fashion stores at that time. Cape can be used to describe any sleeveless outer garment, such as a poncho, but usually it is a long garment that covers only the back half of the wearer, fastening around the neck
In the 19th century cape was just used as a garment to protect from the weather not to make any bold style statement, it was wore over the evening gowns.
But now for this season if you really want a piece that can make you a complete style statement then you must buy a cape. They are not only stylish, versatile but also in trend.
But you should be aware that a cape makes you look voluminous, so you be careful before buying one that you can carry it or not. And if your figure is not allowing you to buy a cape and still you are desperate to follow the trend then just don’t worry I have a solution for that too, just buy a cape with belt on it.
Some points which you should always keep in mind while following this trend. For giving a nice look wear a cape with skinny pants, pencil skirt, leggings, fitted dress or long skirt. Cape-sleeves shirts and cardigans take a front seat in fashion whilst short capes, shawls and stoles are perfect for party wear.
This season capes come in a wide variety, sizes and fabrics from silk and wool to velvet and fur.
One should be careful of their body sizes while selecting a cape. For e.g. A short height women should buy a cape coat that ends up on their waist because a long cape will make them look much shorter and to give your cape a perfect look team it up with short skirts or shorts with tights. And petite women’s don’t have to worry at all as they can wear any type of cape.
This year you will find cape coat in a big designer house to a small street side shoppe,from long cape coat to short in every fabric in every colour,you just have to match you style and you will never go wrong wih this fashion this year. So dear metroholicas…..start buying and….Be Fashionable….!!!!
