While the Winter months draw to a close, there's still a chill in the air for most of us through Spring. That's good enough excuse to indulge in some snug outerwear shopping, with this Wool Cape from American Apparel providing the perfect option.
The cape's structure has an instantly sixties feel, with a wide a-line shape and high collar. In a rich navy wool fabric, it's reminiscent of The Beatles' classic Help capes. The cape's androgyny lends itself well to a mid-sixties aesthetic with a short mid-thigh hemline that can create daring femininity.
