IT IS A GARMENT often associated with eccentrics and super-heroes, but the cape can be very elegant and practical. The cape is bold, mysterious, and powerful. There is a reason Superman and Dracula are such big fans. It is the perfect way to add drama, hides a multitude of flaws, and is a great option to pair with an evening dress. It can be knit, wool, velvet, cashmere, or fur. As global warming progresses and makes the weather as unpredictable as can be, the capes will come out of the closet a lot more. Thankfully. Living in a world without capes would be a dull world indeed.
