Trend Watch: Capes

While the mention of capes may conjure up images of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, they are sure to be very popular this autumn. High-end designers such as Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Alexander McQueen, Phillip Lim, Peter Som and Salvatore Ferragamo all ditched the jacket and showed capes in their Fall/Winter 2010 shows. Capes are sure to spice up your wardrobe because of the various different styles available.

For instance, a cloak, or a longer cape, like the one worn by Vogue Nippon's editor-in-chief, Anna Dello Russo, adds an air of elegance to her classic look.

The cape can also toughen up a look and give off a rocker chic vibe. See how this Parisian combines two of the season's biggest trends, the cape and structured shoulders, to give her outfit a Gothic edge.

Another really wearable option is the sweater cape. Great when paired with skinny jeans and boots, the sweater cape creates a more casual look, making you appear effortlessly put together. This fall, wrap yourself up in Qi’s Ladyhawk Cape! With its toggle closure and chunky knit, the Ladyhawk Cape is the perfect addition to your wardrobe.
