Capes and cloaks are seeing a resurgence in popularity and we couldn’t be more delighted. Originally a staple in the 1930’s capes provided a practical solution to the elements. As such capes offer a great solution to staying warm without killing an evening wear look and are statement enough to be used as a stand alone piece in this day and age.
Why exactly this practical piece went out of fashion no one really knows however. Some have put it down to the scarcity of fabric leading up to World War 2, whilst others blame the practicality of long items when getting into cars and operating machinery during that period.
Perhaps with a return to slow fashion capes are at the top of any fashionistas closet revival in 2016? All we know is that Capes are super flattering and hopefully here to stay.
