Whether it's a chunky rib knit or a lightweight design a wool cape adds an artful layer to your look. Easy to style neutrals and spring like pastels are blended with bold checks and prints in our stylish edit of wool capes.
Put swing into style with a wool cape
A wool cape makes a dramatic addition to your wardrobe giving you extra layering with style in colder months or lighter coverage as the seasons change. Work weekend monochrome looks by slipping blue or black capes over jeans and polo-necks. Keep the tone going with matching shoes and bags, or use them to add pops of colour. Long-length capes in bold prints provide a contrast over tweed skirts worn with knee high boots, just add a silk blouse for efficient office dressing. Capes with buttons make edgy alternatives to jackets so swap your winter coat for one and wear with sleek pencil skirts and heeled ankle boots for elegant evenings in town.
Add an artful layer with a wool cape
If you find your wool cape difficult to keep in place anchor it with a statement leather belt and keep the volume down by pairing with skinny jeans and Chelsea boots, a perfect look for off-duty days. Alternatively, pick a poncho style cape that stays in place. Rib-knit ponchos add extra layers over chunky jumpers while cream or greige styles tone beautifully with a camel coat and cognac-brown boots. Lightweight capes and ponchos with slashed necklines are perfect for holiday evenings with just enough warmth to keep sea breezes at bay. Anchor them with across-body bags or carry a clutch in toning pastel shades.
