Instead of adding extra bulk this Winter by donning a puffer jacket, show off your curves with a cool cape that will keep you wonderfully warm. And you'll definitely stand out in the crowd while enjoying the crisp temperatures. Here are a few tips for finding the perfect Winter cape this season:
- Check the fit: Because you'll be layering while wearing a cape, try the jacket on before making a purchase. Test for tightness in the shoulders by crossing your arms in front of you. If there's significant pull, select a cape one size larger, ensuring you'll be able to wear turtlenecks or light sweaters underneath.
- Go with Winter materials: It's cold out there, so purchase capes that are made from sturdy Winter fabrics, such as wool or flannel. And your jacket will be even warmer if it's lined.
- Secure closures: For a comfortable fit and look, go with button-front capes. For accenting your curves, opt for a cinching cape that has a belt or wrap closure. And all those added embellishments up the trend factor.
- Wear it well: Even if you're full-figured, Winter capes are fitting for all shapes and sizes. Pair with leggings, skinny jeans, or pencil skirts to elongate legs and balance the coat. Add a pop of color and a bit of bling, and you're ready for work or a night out this Winter.
