Knowing what the latest fall garment is might come as a surprise, but it will be a staple of your wardrobe. Let me give you some hints: It’s warm, it’s roomy, it’s comfortable — that’s right, it’s the cape.
No, I don’t mean Superman capes that drag on the floor. I mean velvet, felt or knitted capes that come to the hip or mid-thigh. They close in the front, often with large buttons and many are styled after trench coats, but they do not have sleeves. Instead, they have armholes, slits on the sides or no armholes at all.
