Get cape, wear cape, fly high; Fashion's new superhero is soaring; Style on Sunday.


EVERY fashion superhero needs a cape - fact. The arm-less style was seen all over the AW19 catwalks and will no doubt be one of the musthave pieces for your new season wardrobe.

Italian fashion house Miu Miu showed a variety of capes including a head-turning floor-length number while Etro gave them the printed treatment.

Chanel gave the capelet the tweed treatment and Marc Jacobs showed one in Leopard.

Seventies bourgeois nostalgia was a big theme for Hedi Slimane's second collection for Celine and we adore his classic wool cape creation.

Meanwhile, JW Anderson showcased a quietly chic grey cape. The cool heroic cut works for almost every occasion too, from practical outerwear to dramatic occasion-wear, as seen on supermodel Naomi Campbell.

The British fashion star opted for a full Balmain AW19 cape creation to attend Marc Jacobs' wedding in New York last April.

Meanwhile, draped and caped gowns were also big news at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, as seen at Elie Saab and Givenchy.

Get the show-stopping look for less at Needle & Thread with a dreamy maxi cape teamed over a matching dress.

Not every occasion needs a new frock, give a much-loved dress a revamp and decorate your shoulders in a delicate cape, we love Folkster's Ashley, for a dazzling new look.
