Capelet from The Limited


Capelet Outfits

The cape or capelet is not for everyone; it can be tricky to pull off depending on the pairings you choose.  Some capes can be bulky or so oversized that it can swallow me up to the point that I resemble a couch with a throw blanket over it.  And I don’t want to be mistaken for a coffee plantation emblem, sans the donkey.  So when I stumbled on this version from The Limited from their latest arrivals for Fall, I immediately reserved it online so I can take a closer look in store…and I’m so glad I did.  It’s a fantastic lightweight, not too big, not too long, not too batman-ish, perfect capelet.  I’m beyond ecstatic to finally find one that’s easy to wear and won’t break the bank.

Here are the deets:

  • It comes in two sizes:  XS/S and M/L
  • I got it in the XS/S; for reference, I am 5’4″ and about 125 lbs.  You can see in the pics below, it falls at a flattering length, covers where necessary but doesn’t overwhelm my frame.  I have plenty of room to layer under it.  I also love the u-shape edge on the front and back.
  • It’s available online and in stores – as I said, I reserved mine online for pick-up in store
  • Material:  Stretchy knit – 40% viscose, 30% nylon, 30% wool
  • It retails for $70 but with the 50% off coupon I received in the mail, it was a good value.  09/16/15 Update:  Today only, everything is 50% off with code:  TODAY
  • Con:  The only con I have is that it’s a bit itchy (likely due to the wool) which I think won’t matter when worn over other layering pieces

Hope this quick review and outfit pics help if you have the same challenge of finding the perfect cape for Fall…. I suppose one can have worse problems 😉  That’s it for now!

PS:  The necklace below, along with many others, are now only $3 each at Walmart 🙂
