Moda in Pelle Jessica Black Fabric Cape
A cape? - I hear you ask.  It's true, a cape is nothing new and yet, this is the first time I've incorporated one into my everyday wardrobe!  This month, I've been introduced to how they're worth so much more than the occasional photoshoot, or impulse buy.  In fact, they deserve to be a go-to in the winter wardrobe of all those looking to add a little spice to their daily lockdown walks... I know, I heard it too and yet this is where we're at.  Ladies and gents, it's time to embrace dressing up on your daily walks until we can properly go out out again!  My advice?  Wear the cape now and save your over the knee boots for once they can be joined by a Rose Spritz (or two)...

Counteract the swing-style of your chosen cape with a fedora or knitted hat (bonus points for a pom-pom on top).  This perfectly distributes the weight throughout your outfit.

Opt for heels (if you're not walking miles) and aim for a figure-hugging fit.  For this look, I've paired my favourite faux leather leggings with matching black suede over the knee boots to enhance the illusion of length.

Depending on your taste, of course, but capes tend to hit better when the outfit is kept chic and neutral with metallic flashes.  Gold or silver?  Choose your poison.

Before I love you and leave you, we need to talk about these Selinia OTK Boots.  Designed by my faves at Moda in Pelle, they're now my all-time favourite pair of boots!  The amount of times I've ordered and had to return over-the-boots due to baggy fits is unreal and so to have finally found a pair that fit the leg so perfectly makes me want to cry into my cape.  Oh, and did I mention they're on sale?
