Fashionista NOW: How To Wear Cape Dresses Fashion Inspiration

Get mysterious and cape-tivate your enemies and friends alike by wearing a cape dress.

Anything with a cape is a plus in my fashion book. Not the kind that superheroes wear because that’d be too dramatic reserved only for Halloween and other costume-y events.

Valentino gives capes on dresses a highlight for Autumn/Winter 2014 through the masterful blending of that extra fabric that layers over the back divinely into frocks which translate into an elegant and wearable dress option made for women who can afford them like Alexa Chung who was spotted wearing a butterfly print cape dress at the Milan Fashion Week earlier this year.

However, cape dresses are available at other purse-friendly price points so you can breathe a sigh of relief. The concern is how to choose the right cape dress and how to wear it right, right? So as always, below are a roundup of lookbookers who have chosen to put their best cape dresses on for your fashion inspiration:

black cape dress – Unif

Judy chooses an all-black cape dress with a high neck and cutout boots to hit the nail on an edgy and mysterious look. Find a dress with a cape made of sheer and light material for that wind-blown effect.

red 60s vintage cape dress – Honey Moon Muse

Marriki goes all out with a bold red 60s vintage cape dress. While blacks and other neutral shades seem to be a favorite choice amongst cape-loving dressers but if you want to make twice the statement with nods to the past, here’s a dress that will do just that.

Line the waist with a skinny embellished belt (when needed) so that your curve gets the highlight it needs.

For a demure and feminine look with a cape dress, cue Tasha’s choice: flapper dress in cream with embroidery decorating the hemline and around the cape edge.

red cape dress – Romwe

Red is one of Fall’s celebrated colors. Marry it with a cape dress and you’d be seriously on trend for the season. Darya’s flowy cape hovers in contrast against the form-fitting dress. A sprinkle of gold/bronze jewelry and dainty heels complete her chic look. A quirky addition in the form of a keyhole clutch adds an element of surprise.

A similar dress in a neutral hue cinched at the waist with an earthy brown belt. Love how Johanne grounds the ethereal look with a pair of beige booties and minimal jewelry.
