Trend Alert: Wear-With-Everything Capes

Aside from the shift dress, there’s another easy-to-wear fall fashion trend that we are particularly on board with: the cape.

The cape is similar to the poncho, which was a big trend a few seasons back, but there are a few differences – capes are simpler than ponchos, meaning there are usually no sleeves or extra details. A good cape should be easy, breezy, and effortless—just toss one over your shoulders and you’re ready to go.Trend Alert: Wear-With-Everything Capes | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

Welcoming a cape into your fall wardrobe is something we highly recommend for many reasons. For one, it’s an effortless, comfortable way to look casually chic. Also, there are tons of affordable capes available which means you won’t have to cut into your Pumpkin Spice Latte budget.

We love the this woven cape from H&M ($34.95) and Forever21’s Refined Cape in black ($32.99).  You could also get cheeky with a checked cape from Topshop which is slightly pricier at $64.

Whichever you chose, you’re sure to be on trend this season thanks to the cape. How will you wear yours?
