The cool thing about cape coats, is that they have these slits for your arms to peek out. In my opinion, this has two advantages, firstly, carrying a clutch or a tote never seemed easier. Secondly, you get to show off your sexy gloves! Don't worry, the cape can be worn with jeans or dresses, but I personally think cape coats look really funky with a short dress and knee high boots. Ditch the regular coats this coming winter, and go for a cape coat, it will add instant chicness to your look, promise! Don't believe me? See for yourself.
