My search for a cape began a couple weeks ago after having lunch with my cousin, who looked super chic after going on an interview. She was wearing a short sleeve cream sweater, navy pants, black booties and a cape (similar here) from Sandro. I immediately complimented her ensemble, and told her that I was absolutely obsessed with her cape. She responded, “I got it last season but a cape is perfect for fall weather, and I’m sure that Sandro still has it.” Unfortunately, she was wrong, so I went on the hunt.

I finally found the Wilfred Touraine Sweater in Aritzia on a chilly fall day with my parents. (FYI This cape is more similar to a poncho, but just go with it). It’s a little on the pricey side, so check out this cape from Zara and this one from Forever21 for more options. The cape I purchased isn’t exactly like the one I fell in love with, but I think it’s even better. It can be worn as just a sweater with a tank under, or layered over a long sleeve. The salesperson even suggested putting the cape over a leather jacket on a crisp morning, but I have yet to try that one out. Stay tuned.

Today I wore my cape with leather leggings (see my Cool Girl Pant post here), a COS top (similar here), and Stuart Weitzman booties. Would you style it differently? Would love to hear in the comments below!
