Dress up or dress down
A cape can complement your favourite winter outfit, or it can become the outfit itself.

Step out in style with a cape coat

Some of the most stunning styles available include Karen Millen’s signature wool investment cape complete with fur collar, the Warehouse camel cape or funky Aztec cape for an alternative and informal look, perfect for shopping with friends.
Find your perfect cape shape
There is a cape style out there for everyone, and it’s important to choose the right style to make the most of your figure. Capes are perfect for every body shape; if you have a slender figure, then you can complement any style of cape with skinny jeans and boots. If you don’t want your body shape to get lost underneath the cape then opt for a belted cape coat, which will make the most of your waist.
Ladies who are plus sizes will look fantastic in longer capes with trousers and heels underneath. Many celebrities also use capes as a fashion statement as part of their maternity wardrobe.
The cape is a true essential for your winter wardrobe – it’s versatile, can be dressed up or down, and is a fantastic fashion statement in its own right. To stay warm and look your very best this winter, get shopping for your cape today!
