If you want to look high class in a budget during the cold days, wear a cape coat girl!
With its polished design, it just adds instant elegance to our look.
The cool thing about the cape coat is we can get a wide range of styles if we pair the cape coat with different items.
You can look cool with over-knee boots or look sweet with a nice beret – the combinations are just endless!
I am the type of girl that HATE looking baggy on cold days and the cape coat can always cover all the bulkiness perfectly.
So yes, a cape coat is nothing but a flattering stylish item.
In this article, I will share 8 inspirations when it comes to how to wear a cape coat.
1. WEAR OVER KNEE BOOTS AS A NO-FAIL LOOK
Style a cape coat with over-knee boots is such a no-brainer as they just look harmonious together.
As a cape coat creates a slouchy umbrella shape for the upper body, you want to wear something tight and fitted for the legs to balance out bagginess and show some curves.
Over-the-knee boots are always the perfect choice as they will accentuate your lower half and your leg appear to be longer.
Plus, over-the-knee boots just naturally make you look edgy and that complements the cool tone of your cape coat!
2. WEAR A HAT FOR ENRICHING THE STYLES
Wear a hat with your cape coat can always elevate your look and make you look more polished.
With different types of hats, you can create different styles for sure. If you want more of a vintage elegant look, you can wear the cloche hat or a red velvet beret to add a dash of antiqueness.
Vice versa, if you prefer a chic and stylish look, you can wear the modern boater hat.
By pairing different hats, you can easily be dressed up and down with your cape coat!
3. WEAR CAPE COAT WITH GLOVES TO ELEVATE THE GLAMOUR
While someone must say wearing gloves is too over the top, actually, it’s not!
During the cold days, we should consider wearing gloves to protect our hands all the time.
Ladies, let’s not forget our hands are one of the easiest spots to show the ages!
As cape coats hide our shoulder area, our hands will become more noticeable and that’s good timing to flaunt your gloves.
If you want to keep it lowkey, you can wear wrist-length gloves. As for the occasions that you want to dress up a little bit more, a pair of simple yet elegant elbow-length opera gloves can instantly add elevate your look!
4. STYLE CAPE COAT WITH JEANS FOR A COMFY CASUAL LOOK
If you want to dress down a cape coat, wearing jeans is a nice comfy choice.
The loose design of the cape coat just makes a nice contrast with the tight jeans and makes your thighs appear slimmer.
While blue jeans are the popular choice, I personally adore white jeans more as white is a classy color in nature.
If you have a beige or brown cape coat, try pairing it with the white or cream jeans and you may realize that looks better than blue jeans!
For the shoe, I prefer the pointed flats rather than the ballet flats to make to legs appear longer.
5. OPT FOR TIGHT JEGGINGS AND PANTS FOR A COOL TONE
If you think jeans are too casual for you but you still want to wear pants. Black tight jeggings can come really handy!
With a white cape coat and a pair of black jeggings, that can definitely be one of your working day outfits if you want the girl boss vibes.
For the days you want to look edgy, faux leather jeans are always a cool choice.
6. WEAR A CAPE COAT WITH PATTERNS AS THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE OUTFIT
While most of the cape coats are in solid colors and simple designs, we can wear the ones with special patterns like animal prints for a bold look once in a while!
They look like they are hard to carry but actually, it’s just an illusion.
If you want to wear a leopard print cape coat, you can wear all black so the leopard prints can pop up easily.
Keep the rest of your outfit prints and bright color free and you will never look tacky in the busy print cape coat!
Another tip is to avoid wearing a long dress underneath to reduce the heaviness.
7. CHOOSE BAGGY TROUSERS FOR AN ULTRA CASUAL LOOK
As a petite girl, this style is definitely not for me. But if you are tall, consider wearing flared pants and baggy trousers for a not-so-common look!
It’s true that in general, most body figures look best in tight pants or fitted over-the-knee heels if you wear the cape coat on top.
However, for the tall ladies out there, you can definitely pull off the flared jeans and baggy trousers for an effortlessly chic lazy Sunday look!
When it comes to baggy trousers, a little reminder is you can always pair the same color tone of the shoes to allow your leg to elongate a little bit more visually even if you are just wearing joggers!
8. STYLE IN MONOCHROME FOR A HIGH FASHION LOOK
Last but not least, wearing a cape coat is the perfect time to embrace the monochrome style.
By wearing different shades of the same color tone, the color consistency will pull your body image into a long rectangle and make you appear to be taller and slimmer.
As cape coats already look polished in nature, the tone and tone style can effectively elevate the outfit to high fashion pieces.
It’s always stylish yet time-saving to pair similar hues together!
My favorite look is wearing the ivory cape coat with cream pants and a pair of beige loafers – My friend always thought I am wearing the designer brands while they are actually mostly from Zara and Mango!
So ladies, try out monochrome next time, I can’t explain but that just makes you feel good!
So here are the 8 tips when you wonder how to wear a cape coat in a stylish way!
Let’s have a quick reminder first.
