Below are a few ways to incorporate the cape into your wardrobe and also savvy advice when trying this trend.

Stylist Tips:

  • Style your look in confidence. Fit, length, and quality should all be key factors when selecting your outerwear piece. Find a flattering length that will compliment your body shape. If you are petite in height, choose one that hits above the hip or right at the waist. And my longer-torso ladies and taller girls—feel free to go the distance with your selection!
  • When selecting a cape this fall, use the 360 degree approach! Take some time in the fitting room and use the mirror to your advantage. See how it looks from front, side, and most importantly, the derriere view. Try one with a little structure or “Curvilinear Definition.” It will flatter your frame.
  • This is a trend that “One Size Fits All” applies! Ponchos, cloaks, caplets, and shawls are definitely a curve-friendly item.
  • Incorporate classic and trendy patterns! Try a cool color, material, or embellishment. Have fun with your poncho choice. It’s fashion, so play up your personality and personal style.

Glance at my picks! I have selected eight cape styles that push your style envelope a bit and others that are super chic and minimalistic. Send me pics of your fashionable selections and use the hashtag #TheCurveReport

Curvy Note: ‘Tis the season to shop, shop, shop! I’m excited that tons of brands are welcoming the #CurvyMovement with open arms, and yet another brand is extending its sizes to include the curvy girl. ModCloth is making fit for plus women a priority.This Fall, the brand has several private label pieces that will range from XS to 4X. Can someone say “Fashion for the People”?! With the holidays coming up, you will totally thank me later. Happy Shopping!
