~ So I have to give full credit to my mom, who originally asked for this cape & poncho round up. Funny enough, I had already been overly enthusiastic this season about every single cape I lay my eyes on. Maybe I’m turning into superwoman or something, but I wish I could wear a cape every day!
I bought my first REAL cape my first year after college. I was about to take all of my vacation time to volunteer at New York Fashion Week with 2 of my favorite designers and I NEEDED this Milly cape. It was love at first sight. Tweed, leather trim, gold hardware, heavy enough to be warm…it’s still one of my most prized possessions.
I think there is something special that happens when you wear a cape. It makes you feel stronger, chicer, and perhaps a bit like you have superpowers? And, in my opinion, a well-styled poncho can be just as chic as a cape, but COZIER! I’ve rounded up some of the best capes and ponchos that I could find, and I think that there’s something for everyone. I also know that your jaw will drop as you click through the “Under $100” picks…they certainly do not look it. To shop, click directly on the product above, or I’ve listed each below!
OH and one more thing! TheSkimm is where I get all of my news from and I have since gotten some international friends and classmates hooked as well 🙂 It’s honestly my favorite part of the morning (who knew I could enjoy reading the news so much?!). Today, FEED will donate one dollar to a child in need for every time you share the TheSkimm. And…well…I think it’s pretty wonderful.
Gratefully with love,
