While capes and ponchos are always in fashion, they are having a special moment this season. You can transform your outfit from basic to street style chic with the simple addition of one of these elevated outerwear pieces. Capes can be draped over your shoulders whereas ponchos are easily pulled over the head. The Cape Coat, a heavier version of a cape, is especially on-trend.
Ponchos and capes are versatile and can be effortlessly thrown over whatever else we have on. They are ideal companions for outside gatherings, and will hold a stylish place in your closet for many years. Here are my selections for on-trend ponchos and capes to help keep you warm and fashionable this winter.
