Trend Talk A/W'14: The Blanket Cape


Hey everyone,

A trend I've been really loving lately is 'the blanket cape'. They were first noticed this season when models like Cara Delevingne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore their embroidered ones by Burberry. Since then, the blanket cape has exploded all over the fashion world, and luckily for us- they're getting easier to find! I've searched the high-street from top to bottom and found a few of my favorites. I've also included some high street inspiration, as I know it might seem like it could be difficult to wear- trust me, it's not! The trusty cape can be worn in many ways; like with a mini and knee high boots. Thrown over a long sleeved tee and skinnies. Slung over your shoulders under a coat. The list is endless!

Believe it or not, I recently found my dream blanket cape at Warehouse, which you can see below! I'll have an outfit post up by the end of the week showing you how I personally styled it. I've also found a gorgeous red tartan one from New Look, continuing on from last season's popular tartan trend. Asos and H&M both have a monochrome option, a timeless colour combination that will go with anything in your wardrobe.
