You all know how much I love to raid my mom’s closet when I head home to Austin, and this trip I most definitely took advantage. One of the pieces out of her wardrobe I wore (ahem, repeatedly) was this amazing Rachel Zoe cape-sleeved coat. Apparently it’s from last year – no idea how I was just now finding it! While I love my camel Jenni Kayne cape from fall, it hasn’t been heavy enough to wear, especially now that the temps have dropped below 50 around here. This Rachel Zoe coat of my mom’s is ideal – I kinda wish they would remake it or at least another version of it. There’s so much to love about this coat: the funnel neck, oversized buttons, waist-cinching belt and of course, the big cape sleeves. Since this particular coat is no longer available (tear), I found a few chic alternatives to get the look yourself!
If you love fur (and this luxe, green hue), check out this cashmere + fox fur cape. It’s a gorgeous cocktail outerwear option, don’t you think? For a more daytime look in a similar green color, this Vince cape is a winner (and it’s on sale!). If you’re not necessarily sold on green, you may love this camel Trina Turk cape/coat, or this leather-lined cape by Ralph Lauren. Also, this dream cape – sigh.
