Hot for Fall: Capes and Ponchos

NordstromIf last fall was all about the flowy cardigan, get ready for capes and ponchos to take center stage this season.

This is not my favorite trend, since once it's out there's no way of updating it and making it work in a future season.

However, capes and ponchos can be a very mom-friendly look.

Think of the camouflaging opportunities, ladies!

One great way to wear this look is to layer your poncho or cape over a pair of skinny jeans or pants, as in this photo from Nordstrom's latest catalog.

Taller, more willowy women can pull off the cape over wide-legged pants. This is a sharp silhouette for the workplace.

NordstromI really love the idea of wearing a poncho over a slim skirt and opaque tights. So stylish and current- and you probably already have everything but the poncho/cape in your closet already!

NordstromAs for options, I'm crazy about this Aryn K Cape (Nordstrom, $98). It is going right down on my wish list.

NordstromThis Calvin Klein Capelet (Nordstrom, $128) would look great over a skirt or skinny pants.


NordstromAnd this Halogen cape (Nordstrom, $88) is a fantastic option for skinny jeans or flares. LOVE.
