No Capes!

Edna Mode from the Incredibles let us know that capes are not a good idea for super heroes but this Fall capes and ponchos are in style for the general female population.

Once big in the seventies ponchos and capes are making a comeback.1700976-t-THUMBNAIL

The word “hippie” may come to mind when thinking about ponchos but many styles, textiles, colors and sizes are available to give the look of elegance or a more casual feeling.

Capes are just the thing to throw on before taking the dog out or getting the morning paper. Ponchos or capes are great for layering and look good with hats, leggings, slim pants or skirts. Boots finish off the ensemble along with a cross-body bag worn under the poncho. No worries about pick pockets.

When shopping for this year’s wrap consider a poncho or cape. Most are very affordable and all are the hit this year.
