Fall for Capes

how to wear capes, packing for travel

This season, we are mad about capes.  Worn with skinny pants and any boot or heel height,  a cape creates a stylish silhouette.   And if you want to talk about travel essentials, a cape tops the list for packability and versatility.  From topping jeans and white shirt, over slacks and turtleneck or flung over a cocktail dress, and long gloves for a night on the town, you create a fashion statement without even trying.   This leather piece really caught our eye for packing a punch of city-glam whether New York, London, Paris, Istanbul or any other metropolitan ports of call.  For more packing tips, see our new book Packing for Travel

J Crew has a fabulous trio for any occassion, from cityside to countryside.
