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.
Coat: Rachel Zoe (old – similar here and here), Sweater: OTTE NY, Pants: Theory (old – similar here), Bag: Balenciaga, Shoes: Prada, Bracelet: c/o Henri Bendel, Rings: Michael Kors and BaubleBar
I fully agree- it looks amazing, warm and great on you…You should totally borrow it from your mum:-))
Have a great week!
This cape is amazing, so pretty!
This cape is gorgeous! I bought a Rachel Zoe romper this year and I was happily surprised by the quality. I bet the cape is perfectly crafted too. Happy 2015!
Love that cape and your mother’s home! Enjoy your time with her! XOXO
That cape is beautiful! So fun that you share some of her things while home. I occasionally do the same to my mom. I love that you paired it with black leather. It adds such a great edge.
