We all have, at one point or another, wished that we were Wonder Woman. Oh if only we had her powers – we could balance our careers, our relationships, and our finances seamlessly, all the while looking impossibly polished! While the former may be near impossibly, the later isn’t. Take a leaf out of Wonder Woman’s book. Throw on a cape and you will wield the ability to look sophisticated and faultlessly on-trend.
Don’t believe us? This bell shaped outerwear has been revamped and featured in the A/W ’10 collections from some of our favourite fashion houses. We are particularly coveting the cloaks we saw on the Alexander Wang, Yves Saint Laurent, Celine and Rag and Bone runways.
Before you leap into this trend, there is one rule: keep it slim fitting on the bottom or else the top heavy silhouette can become extremely unflattering. Make the most of this powerful and sexy look by adding a thigh high boot which will create maximum impact.
So join the league of caped crusaders like Leighton Meester, Natalie Portman, Sienna Miller and Kate Hudson and invest in what is set to be one of this autumn/winter’s most attention grabbing garments.
