Let’s face it, the weather here in the Midwest is crazy (it’s 70 today but might snow tomorrow, soak that in). Stocking your wardrobe with layers is key, and I’ve discovered that a cape is an easy alternative to figuring out which jacket fits best.

I never would’ve thought to seek out a cape while shopping, but it was included in my first Trunk Club order and I fell in love. You can throw it over whatever outfit you’ve already picked out for the day, and the black-and-camel color combo makes it easy to match a range of outfits. And the most important part? It feels as cozy as wearing a blanket!

I chose to wrap it over a simple black top, leather-coated leggings and my over-the-knee boots. But the cape works with jeans and dresses, casual clothes and fancier attire. I like to think of it as model-off-duty, because it’s so easy and versatile.
