For the past three years my best friend has been bugging me about buying a scarf or cape (thanks Vanessa!) I am typically a sweatshirt or athleisure type of girl when it comes to bundling up, but last year I went for it and scooped up a few of these goodies and never looked back. To tell you the truth these capes have become my #1 travel accessory because with the kids they double up as a blanket too.
I think of it as the edgy, yet, elegant way to travel. As it turns out, these pieces are chic, simple, and incredibly warm – what’s not to love? I did splurge this year and buy the Burberry Merino Cape, but I also have several that I have picked up under $50 that have amazing reviews.
One Cape, Three Ways
Tip: Beware of 100% wool capes / ponchos, they will be too itchy to enjoy, instead reach for wool blends and ALWAYS read reviews.
Remember this look from last year?
Thanks for checking out this post!
