Capes: the new way to keep warm this Winter

Is it a poncho, a jacket or some kind of a coat? Well, it’s actually a mix of all three, which is why you'll want to invest in a cape this season. A cape has the casual, relaxed shape of a poncho, the drama of a coat and works just as well as a jacket. Seen all over the international runways from YSL to Celine and Alexander Wang for Winter 2011 it’s on the radar of every fashionista, which means this trend is here to stay.

And talk about versatile! It can either be short and cropped, which is perfect with jeans or harem pants, or long and dramatic tossed over a skirt or a dress. The great thing about the cape is that it’s also ideal for trans-seasonal dressing and mild Australian Winters. Wear it right now and you won't have to take it off 'til Summer. Oh, and did I mention practical? Pop your arms through and you can wear this little piece all day at the desk then take it straight out to dinner.

Visit Jayson Brunsdon and Oroton at Westfield Bondi Junction for some great caped looks. 

Have a lovely day!… Anna
