9 Quirky Cape Coats ...

By Sophia

Cape coats are a great option of outerwear in the cooler months. Most come in thick wool or wool blends, but why not think outside of the square this season and look to cape coats in different fabrics and with interesting details? As most cape coats don’t provide much warmth in the arms, it’s also worth investing in some elbow length gloves. The resulting look is quite ladylike.
