No fall wardrobe is complete without a layering staple. The versatile piece should provide a layer of warmth to any outfit and be effortlessly stylish. Enter this season’s reversible capelet, rendered in a bordeaux print or classic black. The luxe fabric is soft and cozy, while the draped silhouette looks perfect atop anything from printed maxi dresses to tailored separates. Here are a few of the many ways we suggest styling it this season.
For a night out, eshew the traditional minidress in favor of a touchable, cozy ensemble. Belt the capelet closed over a thin slip dress and finish with layered jewelry and over-the-knee boots. The result is understated yet sexy.
For chilly morning commutes (and air-conditioned offices), layer the capelet under your topcoat. We’re particularly fond of teaming ours with the timeless menswear trend, mixing pinstripes with checks and finishing the look with luxe pieces like a croc-embossed clutch and tassel earrings.
For a weekend getaway, take advantage of an opportunity to mix prints and incorporate playful accessories. We love a printed maxi dress with a printed capelet, particularly when paired with rugged boots and a wide-brimmed hat.
For casual weekend activities like watching Sunday Football, try a modern spin on the Western trend that’s huge for Fall 2018. Start with a denim-on-denim ensemble anchored with a belt, and punctuate it with a thin cashmere knit and a neckscarf. Finish the look with a printed capelet, ankle boots and a cowboy-inspired felt hat.
For weekday errands, cinch the capelet over skinny blue jeans and a camel turtleneck. Round out the look with leopard-print boots and a soft lip.
For wine-tasting with friends, opt for an all-black look punctuated with flecks of gold. We love a feminine blouse tucked into high-waisted jeans and finished with a gold-buckle belt. Add a layer of warmth with the noir capelet and some extra glamour by way of a tiered necklace.
