Trend Report~ Cape Town: 6 Fashionable Capes You Must buy this Fall

Typically, I don’t succumb to the tailored trends of the season. I’m willing to give respect if deserved, and admire others style, even if I try not to partake in them. But sometimes the items that become seasonal trends just happen to be the same things I’ve started obsessing over. Case in point? Fashionable capes for fall 2014. My predilection lately to go with the status quo started last year, when I fell hook, line and sinker for the pastel trend. It’s died down since, but my obsession with mint somehow, has not. And now it begins again. I find myself dreaming about, and admiring the fashionable capes and ponchos following me everywhere I go. My dream version is the Burberry, but what a treat when your reality comes just as close.
