The air is getting crisper, the temps are beginning to dip ever so slightly, and the sun is setting earlier—you know what that means: Fall is just around the corner. And with a new season, comes a whole new set of wardrobe staples and an ample opportunity to whip out your favorite camel coats , tweed jackets , stylish riding boots and loafers —all elements that take everyday autumn and winter dressing to the next level.
We may no longer be confined to the possibility of only socializing outdoors, but if we learned anything over the years it's that every time you leave the house is an opportunity to wear a killer topper. It just so happens that cape coats are the cold-weather trend you'll want to add into rotation this upcoming season. Not only can the sleeveless cap-coat provide a visual departure from your mundane jacket, but they are just so darn elegant ( just ask the royal family ). Better still: whether you fancy feminine lines or gravitate towards military or utilitarian shapes, or perhaps love a classic check or a timeless tartan, capes are just another way to iterate on those style tentpoles in a way that feels fresh and new.
Here, we show you our favorite cape coats and fashions, from the classic wool number, to perfect plaids, and even a trench coat version, too.
