The Cape Returns: What to Wear for Fall

By Tenisha Mercer

Capes made a big splash last year -- and they're back again this fall, stronger than ever.

I didn't snag a cape last year (almost got one at TJ Maxx in the spring) but they're a must have on my shopping list this season. They're sexy, elegant and are the perfect cover up. They're also a great alternative to the trench coat.

They're great when it's chilly outside, yet it's not quite cold enough for a full-blown coat. Dress it up or down: Pair it with a pair of skinnies, leggings and riding boots for a chic, casual look, or glam it up with a pencil skirt. Just remember to pair a cape with a tighter-fitting bottom to balance the proportion of the looser coat on top.

Are capes on your shopping list this year?
