Fashionistas choose capes

What is a cape? This is the fresh trend of the season, namely the loose coat for women. It looks like both a poncho and a mantle at the same time, although in fact it looks like a warm cape. For the first time, the cape as such appeared in England in the Middle Ages, it was intended for long-distance travel or was used as clothing for monks. However, with the advent of the Victorian era, the red cape became an invariable detail of the female royal wardrobe. It was sewn from dense fabric and decorated with hand embroidery, jewelry, fringe and gold monograms. In the 19th century, the cape also gained popularity in Ukraine, where it began to be called "salop", and such a thing was worn by wealthy citizens and officials. From time to time this type of cape reached the peaks of popularity, the last time - in 2013.

Since its inception, the cape has undergone significant changes both in appearance and in the fabrics used. But its role has not changed, and today this coat is combined with any image. The versatility and variability of the cape became possible due to the fact that there are three styles of this cape:

  • military with epaulettes on the shoulders and a double-breasted collar;
  • delicate models with embroidery, ruffles or beads for romantic and evening looks;
  • business capes, which are distinguished by clear cut lines.

Capes are sewn with a fastener from the neck to the hem, and some are decorated only with an elegant belt. There are also styles with short sleeves or special cuts for the arms, which are more like a vest.

Capes surprise with a variety of cuts. So, cropped models are a coat to the middle of the thigh, which is perfect for cool spring days. The midi-length styles reach the knees, they are loose-fitting and will become indispensable in combination with dresses or skirts. But the maxi-cape looks a little extravagant, the model sometimes reaches the middle of the lower leg. Such a thing can replace a down jacket in early winter and protect from bad weather. For sewing demi-season capes, drape, tweed, artificial fabrics are used, so the cape will appeal to lovers of comfort and warmth.

When choosing a cape, it is important to take into account the features of the figure. Women of small stature should not choose a thing of midi or maxi length, because clothes will hide the figure and visually reduce the length of the legs. Skillfully combining a cape with the rest of the wardrobe is a real art. A short cape is worn with a fitted bottom. Jeans, trousers, pencil skirts and straight dresses are suitable for such an image, in some cases, wearing a pleated skirt, you can create a retro style. The cape may not have sleeves, so in cold weather it is better to wear a warm sweater or long gloves.

The cape is the perfect addition to a woman's wardrobe. This is a stylish thing that will emphasize the elegance and delicate taste of its owner. In our online store you will find a wide range of demi-season coats, just follow the link:
