Layering is quintessential to keeping warm during the winter season; cozy up to a cape coat that will help you stay toasty and chic.

Whether you're adding an air of mystery or an extra piece of outerwear to face cooler temperatures, capes provide a statement-making addition to your ensemble. Draw inspiration from Pre-Fall 2013, a season that has seen the strong return of the cloak. Designers such as Ricardo Tisci and Clare Waight Keller have reinvented said frocks for Givenchy and Chloé respectively.

Play with different swooping styles and lengths to create your own cloaked look. For instance, one could opt for a boho-chic vibe as seen in Hedi Slimane's debut collection for Saint Laurent Paris. Experiment with variations to make for a masterfully layered look that is your very own.
