Cape Dress:Back to the Medieval Times this Winter
There is something more than looking a superhero in wearing capes. In fashion, the rise of cape dresses has become huge the past few years. In fact, this 2016 has been an ethereal year for wearing these majestic-looking cape outfits that have frequented the red carpet and the runways. Designer brands have included at least one or two in their collections!
Cape dresses are not a millennial invention. If you can remember, old Hollywood and the ancient royals have been wearing so for years. Although the difference lies on how vast this style has been. Before, it only limits women to wear them on very special occasions because it looks a bit dramatic and elegant. Today, cape dresses are everywhere and it’s even a huge thing this coming fall season. In this article, let’s take a look at these gorgeous cape dresses worn by the stars and how to style them both for elegant and casual occasions.
