People often dismiss capes as being tricky. A Google search will lead you to websites helpfully telling the reader to wear this season's cape with slim fitting basics, to avoid bangles and keep the accessories simple. How boring.
What are you supposed to do when you reach your destination, remove your cape and fade into the background in a polo neck, stud earrings and pencil skirt? No thanks.

Wear what feels right and forget the rules. Looking daft doesn't matter, feeling like you is far more important.
Go on, be brave and try a cape. They aren't that scary really.
