Her Looks

Put a cape on it!

October 24, 2014
Who says capes are only for superheros and magicians? Capes, long shirts and long cardigans are the new trends in town, making us feel like we are all superwomen! Although I don’t really follow trends, I’m totally loving capes and how dramatic they look on any simple outfit. They seem to be everywhere, right from the ramp at fashion week to high street retail brands. Personally I feel there are so many possible ways to style them, given the kind of variety you have in the lengths, fabric and silhouette.
For this look I picked the most basic long cape/shirt dress. After a burst of colorful outfits on the blog, I wanted to keep it muted in black, grey and white with hints of gold.ย This can be styled as a shirt dress with a belt over it, under a printed maxi skirt, over shorts and a tee to name a few ideas. So show me how you would style a cape by tagging me on instagram (@thegirlatfirstavenue). Meanwhile I’m off to superwoman things!

    Love the gold cuff Chandana. I am still getting used to them. I feel gold adds too much of bling.. but you managed it well ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am visiting your blog after quite a gap and am amazed to see how your style has developed and grown .. Loving your posts..

    I have a query, if we buy from oasap, do we need to pay custom duties?
    Also what is safe for international online shopping – paying through paypal or directly through card ??

    Thank you so much! Yes I do remember seeing your comments! ๐Ÿ™‚ Good to see you here again!
    I've received products from oasap four or five times and I never had to pay any customs.
    Regarding the payment, I received the products as part of a collaboration so I didn't go through the payment gateway so can't really comment on it. But they accept paypal and their customer support/delivery etc is quite reliable and prompt. So I guess either should be okay.
