The Cape

 I have really been craving coats recently. This is not a new thing for me as I often find myself gravitating towards the outerwear sections, as I use coats and jackets to dress up outfits as I generally prefer more simple pieces. Ever since I saw the beautiful Arabella Golby wearing a cape I knew that I had to get my hands on one. The one I originally had my eye on was over £100 and I didn't really want to invest that much money in a piece I was only trying out so I abandoned the idea. I then spotted this beauty in, none other than, Next. It was reduced in the sale to half the price so I picked it up.
I love this cape in particular as it has buttons to fasten it. I know some capes have hooks or don't fasten at all which I feel would be a problem for me, as I'm so clumsy I could just see it falling off my shoulders all the time. As this is the first outfit I've styled with a cape I went for utter simplicity with a crisp white shirt. I love the way the white sleeves poke out in contrast with the cape and I think it looks timeless.  I then paired it with some plain black jeans from Topshop and boots from Boohoo a couple of years ago.
I hope you liked this look, feel free to leave a comment below.
