One of this season's most daring coat trends is the cape. Designers are always reinventing this old-school style to make it modern and relevant for today's fashionista (consider this cool city cape
by Elizabeth and James or this showstopping cape
by Derek Lam). Look for super-wearable coat styles, or short, cropped capelets that can be paired with jeans or a dress. If you're concerned about this trend's staying power, pick a budget-friendly piece like this military-inspired cape
from ASOS ($59 on sale) or this adorable capelet
from Forever for just $27.80. Would you wear a cape?
