H&M Blanket Cape, Whistles Cliche Jumper, Grey Cord Skirt c/o Motel Rocks, Ray Ban Wayfarer, Asos Fur Scarf, Primark Cross-Body Bag, Boots c/o Missguided
Well, incase you've been living under a rock the last month or so, you will probably know this season's 'it' item is the blanket cape. I try not to give 'it' items the time and space in my wardrobe unless I really fall for a piece but this trend is just so huge, we both wanted to show you guys how we would both style this must have.
There are two main styles available on the high street - those similar to the Burberry AW show sported by Cara etc. and tribal/aztec/navajo inspired pieces, like a sort of transitional Kimono. Neither of these really took my fancy (though if someone does fancy getting me an actual Burbs with AJW on that would be great) so my first task was to find a blanket cape a little more me. This plain grey number from H&M seemed spot on. I don't usually go for tassly bits but I actually didn't mind them on this! as it added the perfect bit of interest to the piece and the outfit
Seeing as Autumn is offically here, it only seemed right to layer the blanket cape with my favourite item, the jumper. This statement motif number from Whistles was the exact excuse I needed to do an all tonal outfit with the cape so added my Motel Rocks skirt and new Asos Sale fur into the mix too. To break up the fifty shades of grey I went for textured black bag and shoes.
Have you bought into the blanket cape trend? I think I might just have been won over!
