Having an organized and stylish place to keep your weed that you can leave out in plain sight is an option any adult deserves.
The problem with buying into trends is that they never last -- every season I have at least five (if not more) items that I bought solely on the fact that my girlfriends convinced me it was good idea, and it never is.
But this season, I got lucky! Because what's in now happens to be super comfy and a closet staple: ponchos and capes. They were a favorite at the Burberry Spring 2015 show, and then once I saw Olivia Palermo rocking a cape and knee-high boots, I knew I had to try one. Wearing one is like wearing a blanket outside of the house, and they are really versatile.
So I bought this Multi-stripe cape for $68, a good price-point for a statement item. What made me go for it versus other options first was the color pattern: Its earthy tones are perfect for fall, and I can already see myself wearing it so many different ways! I’ve worn it to work a few times with a leather pencil skirt and cropped sweater, and when I need to just go to the grocery store or run an errand it’s by far the most convenient piece to grab and go. It’s a warm acrylic, and not too thick, so I can layer with ease. I chose to wear it today with a dark denim and a burgundy American Apparel sweatshirt. Inspired by my newfound love, here are four other options you could wear for other occasions.
Elevate this cool, neutral cape for work with a bold lipstick shade and heels. I especially like the short sleeves and (what you can't see) draping in the back.
Leather and tassels? Always a yes. Made from wool with real leather tassels, this cape works well with skinny jeans, ankle boots and a top for a night out. I could also see this paired with a minidress and platforms.
I’m always searching for something that’s comfortable and that can be thrown on over a T-shirt and jeans and look put together. This wool cape is the closest I could ever get to that. It’s got a sturdy shape, so you can layer with anything underneath, and hits below the waistline.
For all the print-lovers out there, check out the Aztec-inspired design on this cape! I'm picturing it with slouchy boyfriend jeans and slip-on sneakers.
