Fashion Finds: Cape Coats

I've talked about my excitement for capes in the spring, but my excitement for capes this autumn far surpasses it! I've always been a fan of cape coats and since the resurgence in the look we're finding lots of new and fabulous ways to wear them. If you're a first-time cape-wearer this season, I thought I'd take some time to shop around and share my favorite fashion finds on the internet. Maybe you'll find your first cape right here! (If you do, I get ten percent commission - just kidding.)

AK Anne Klein Cape Coat; $239, AnneKlein.com

Tahari "Belle" Capelet; $148, Nordstrom

Buton Up Cape Coat by Staple; $144.04 (sale), ASOS

French Toasty Cape; $72.99, ModCloth

Camel Button Buckle Cape; £30 (sale, roughly $46), Dorothy Perkins

I love the diversity in these capes, from patterns to colors, sleeves, collars, buttons, belts, buckles…you get the idea. The longer the cape coat has been around the more it's evolved, that's pretty evident here. I'm drawn to the more classic, vintage looking capes and capelets, but there are definitely some new and abstract spins on the look as well.

What do you think of the cape coat for fall? Will you be sporting one?
