Trend Alert: Capes for Winter Flamboyance!

The nip in the air makes it quite evident that it’s the time to top up your wardrobe with some stylish winter wears. Keeping the runways and red carpets in mind we’ve come to you with royal cape trend. The trend made an entry at Alessandra Rich’s spring 2012 presentation, Tom Ford Fall 2012 and Holmes and Yang. While Chiffon capes added the elegance and drama to Valentino Fall 2012 Couture, Dolce and Gabbana’s decided to keep it majestic and regal with gold threads and embellishments on rich velvet fabrics in their Fall 2012 collection.

Gwyneth Paltrow turned all heads with her simple and chic Tom Ford gown with a cape at Oscars 2012. Sarah Jessica parker can never go wrong when it comes to fashion. She chose to wear a Valentino Fall 2012 Couture gown with a cape for the New York Ballet Fall Gala back in September.

The trend was seen all over the New York ballet fall gala 2012. Karolina kurkova dazzled in a red Valentino gown with pleated cascading cape with a flowing detail. Elle fanning did the trend just right with throwing over a cardigan as cape on her big floral print Rochas Resort 2013 gown.

There’s not much to experiment with the cape trend, you can either wear a cardigan on shoulders like cape as fanning did or you can get capesque sleeves like Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Dolce and Gabbana Fall 2012 lace dress.

The trend can be worn on skinny pants apart from the gowns and dresses.

The look involves layering so you must keep the accessories minimal. So go on and try the majestic cape to add a lot of drama to your couture this winter.
