i have a short Ann-Louise Roswald one in thick material so its quite stiff and i feel a bit 'upholstered' when i wear it. Its hard to wear actually, I don't know what trousers or skirt looks best with a mini-one. . . check it out below.

also have a long black and white plaid mohair one, vintage from the Scottish House. Its hasn't got any sleeves and my arms get a bit cold when i wear that one, so I sometimes put on long fingerless armwarmers with it. Then mittens. Kind of arm layering style.

I like that one.

Yes, capes are starting to pop up everywher here now, and Im starting to see many people around me wearing them, Oasis has one in cream and black.

I bought one from there, still deciding if I should keep it or not, it's not that warm, still need to layer underneath.

I bought 5 capes from Ebay this season, all vintage. Each is in pristine, immaculate condition... Ebay is easily the best choice for capes.

I agree. Just bought one there myself! A simple, black one from Topshop, not vintage.

I bought this cape from Armani Exchange yesterday! It's cute and light, good for mild weather.

tip: saw a great black short cape at Zara the other day.. thankfully, not too many people are wearing them here, so i guess its still ok to wear one.. the question is when??
Capes should be ok during late fall but with winter temperatures brrr its cold for capes

lena, i wonder when too. winter where i am now is just not cape weather and they can't exactly be worn under jackets. since i'm reluctant to put mine away until next fall, i usually wear them indoors as sweaters.

right, i agree..
not much one can put over a cape, since a cape is supposed to be outwear .
maybe it would be ok over some heavy kind of knit blouse, not sure if i'd wear heavy knit under a cape though ..

i know the problem, Lena.
I have been wearing mine on top of lots of layers. Then you definitely need the whole hat, scarf and gloves thing.
And also arm warmers (which I have got from H&M)

agreed...it's far too cold here to wear capes. unless it's a heavy-duty highland woollen cape that falls to the knees...those are actually incredibly warm. I'm a bit wary of capes...but I'd wear one of those (especially with a traditional silver celtic brooch closure). unfortunately they tend to be really expensive..
