We didn’t really see this one coming. Yet all of a sudden they were everywhere: capes. This most striking outerwear fashion piece is back in style.

And we’re not just talking about any cape. No it’s a particular cape that’s the new hit of the season. It has a natural color like beige or light brown and more than often it has a small darkbrown edge as a finishing detail.

On the streets of Milan and Paris we spotted many of those fashionable capes. They were worn with leggings or trousers, never with a skirt or a dress.

Between the fashionista’s who wore them, were Anna dello Russo and our own fashion blogger Tess.

What do you think of this fashionable trend? Is it here to stay?
Or should capes just be worn by superheroes?
