Cape Vibes with Ellos
Winter means breaking out heavier clothing, and nothing says winter like this snazzy City Cape I got from Ellos not to long ago.
Per the website: "Seize the day and night in our standout cape for the season, crafted in a boiled wool blend to add warmth. Cut in a trapeze silhouette, the two front pockets and faux-leather trimmings along the scoop neckline and front zip placket make it the ultimate outer layer."
Some of my favorite characteristics of this cape include:
- Trapeze silhouette
- Curved bottom high/low hem
- 30" from center back, hits at upper thigh
- Rayon/wool, unlined
I decided I wanted to belt it because I had felt that it gave me more volume and more body. I like having a shape to the things I wear so the belt provided that for me. I borrowed one of my boyfriends belts because oddly enough I don't have one! How crazy I know. What I love about the cape most is the zipper detailing in the front and detail on the lining. It creates a color block since there is so much grey in the cape.
I paired it with a pair of harem pants and some booties for a chicer look. It all comes together in a very chic New York City way. Take a look a pics below and let me know in the comments if this cape is something you'd wear!
