You might not be able to channel a superhero by scaling walls and lifting cars, but you can borrow a little tip from them by wearing this season’s best accessory, a cape. As a stand-in for a coat a cape is fresh with a touch of classic charm. Leighton Meester as Blair in Gossip Girl helped start the outerwear revolution by wearing a bright green cape (and since has sported other capes as well.) With all the different options out there now, you can make the trend work for your needs. Pick a tweed for a traditional style, bright for an artsy twist, and find a faux fur for fancy occasions.
