I'm obsessed with capes at the moment. Does anyone know where I can find one similar to this one?

^ I have no idea...

Capes are a huge trend right now... though in this thread there seems to be a few boleros, which is a style I don't really like...

I like the one Sienna Miller is wearing these days. (Sorry too lazy to look for a pic.) But I'm not a big fan of sequined boleros.

I think I remember seeing a black cape at HM that kind of looks like the one kate moss is wearing, but a bit shorter...

The cape of good taste
(Filed: 02/11/2005)

A winter coat may be an annual staple, but it is no longer the only option for the colder months. Chunky knits and ponchos, gilets and cosy wraps have all become popular, but, this autumn, the cape is shaping up to be the chicest choice.

Designers first tried to persuade us to wear capes a couple of seasons ago, but they were promptly usurped by the poncho, which itself went from ultra-hip to ultra-chav with alarming speed. This is unlikely to be the fate of the cape, though, which has much more of an edge than the sloppy poncho.

This autumn, many designers have incorporated capes into their collections. Miu Miu has some of the most stunning versions, including long tweed or plaid capes - some of which have shaggy mongolian skin collars - as well as more bohemian, colourful suede patchwork capes with whip-stitched seams.

Yves Saint Laurent has a tweed version with stiff braided seams, while Missoni has a much softer, high-necked, multi-coloured knitted cape. For a more affordable design, try Tu at Sainsbury's, which has a brilliant high-necked black version that costs just 35.

The longer silhouettes favoured by the designers look quite dramatic, but the high-street chains are producing shorter shapes, which are a little more palatable for anyone who prefers a subtle approach. Topshop and Whistles have cute cropped versions, which, incidentally, are very useful for bicycle and moped riders, as they keep shoulders warm, but still allow plenty of movement.

Choosing a cape

With all of these shapes, proportion is key. Longer capes can swamp small frames, so think about whether you have the height to carry them off. Wear them with narrow-leg trousers, or skinny jeans rather than skirts, which will create a confusion of hemlines.

Hip-length capes are by far the simplest to wear, and will flatter most body shapes, but, again, trousers are easier to carry off than skirts.

Shorter capes look great on most frames - although anyone with an ample bust should probably avoid them. Wear them over a plain polo-neck for the sleekest effect.

hmmm....I had no idea capes were a trend.

I just bought like two weeks ago a black vintage silk velvet one from the thirties...it's so pretty and soft and well made with all these great little details here and there, but it was really long so I had it shortened. It's a lot of fun to wear. I haven't seen anyone else wearing a cape yet either, but I don't think I will because a cape is probably one of the last things on earth that would hit my town. Thank God.
