I spotted this plaid cape (poncho?) at Nordstrom during their fall preview event sale with my good friend Sharon. At first I was IN LOVE with the flattering cut of this garment but then it sat in my closet unloved and unworn for months! That is until today! I finally figured out how to style it properly. So ladies, if you are wondering how to properly execute styling this season's cape trend, here are a few pointers:
1: Wear skinny jeans! This will balance out the volume of your upper half. However, if you are against skinny jeans a nice boot cut will work as well!
2: Get height with heels. I always find that a classic round toe pump brings instant timeless class to any of-the-moment trend.
3: Carry a top handle bag! Can you imagine how difficult wearing a cross body bag with this cape would be? Keep a bulky hand bag away from your body's silhouette by toting a clutch or top handle bag instead.
