I Need This To Survive: Gwen Stefani’s Holmes & Yang Cape PLUS 25+ Capes I Love
I’m having a mayday situation. Spiraling to quote June Ambrose. I’ve barely recovered from Hurricane Sandy and now, a Nor’Easter is headed to New York City for Wednesday. And I have no winter coat. Tragedy.
I had been walking around in my H&M leather jacket and/or Lanvin for H&M trench without a care in the world but now that winter is here with a vengeance, it’s time to invest in something chic to keep me warm while trekking around the city (and I obvsi only bring the Lanvin for H&M faux fur out for Fashion Week. Obvs).
The number one outerwear moment on my list? A cape.
It just SCREAMS elegance. Like “Breakfast at Tiffany,” Jackie O., Olivia Pope on “Scandal” elegance. Can you imagine me swinging a huge bag, wearing oversized shades and strutting for my life on these NYC streets in a cape? Oooo! In all black AND a plum lip? The look gives LIFE, chile.
And now that I’ve seen Gwen Stefani slay in it, I need it to survive. The “No Doubt” frontwoman stepped out in a Holmes & Yang Fall 2012 black cape in London which she paired with Michael Kors Resort 2013 black and white printed top and pants and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.
Get into that single pop of red color on her lips. SICK.
