I recently discovered the website NewChic & they have quickly become one of my go-to sites for finding trendy items at budget prices.  I love the drama that a cape creates anytime you drape one over your shoulders; it totally ups the glam factor of a classic sweater & jeans.   As soon as I saw this one, I knew it was going to match my Stuart Weitzman boots perfectly & had to have it. 










I think one of the most important tips when wearing a cape is to make sure you are showing off your shape in some way.  That either means wearing a fitted top underneath like I did today by adding this not chunky, but totally warm sweater, or, if the cape is large & drapes enough, belting it at your waist.  Also anytime you have more bulk/layering on top, wearing slim fitting pants helps (another example here).
