TREND ALERT: Capes & kimono sleeves

Capes have been a big hit globally this summer and the trend is only going to get stronger, come fall-winter 2015! Be it a royal classic cape, the more modern mini cape or kimono/flared sleeves (which smartly gives us the cape look while allowing easy arm movement); I am totally digging this trend. While some of these are designed to soften out our look, some come in seriously bold colors and shapes – there is a cape for every fashionista! Read on to see who wore it and which are my favorite designer pieces.


All the lovers of couture, here are my picks of the best capes and kimono sleeves:

Ralph&Russo cape  Sabyasachi cape  Ralph&Russo cape   Balmain cape   Ralph&Russo cape  Zuhair Murad cape   Manish Malhotra cape   Elie Saab cape    Elio Abou Fayssal cape   Manika Nanda cape  Zuhair Murad cape

While I love all of these designs, my absolute favorite for this style would be the Ralph & Russo outfits. You must check out their instagram page (Ralph & Russo insta) for more capes and other dazzling outfits!

Looks like the cape craze has touched the entire universe of fashion – The other day while walking past stores at the mall, I spotted this trend almost everywhere! Now, is it just me, or did the latest Tod’s  bag get its own mini #cape ? ;)

Going through the images, I couldn’t help but have a major throwback moment into the awesome gossip girl days. Anyone else feel Blair Waldorfy yet?
