A cape is a great way to add a little elegance to your winter wardrobe

When it comes to outerwear, nothing brings more drama than a cape. Not only does it pair perfectly with everything from much-loved denim to festive party dresses, but it also allows your arms to peek out just enough to show off your favourite knitwear. Despite its superhero connotations, a cape is the perfect alternative to winter puffer coats and windbreakers that can often look too laid-back for certain occasions. Here are six capes that the MOJEH team are currently coveting.


Burberry reversible checked wool-blend cape,

Burberry’s camel cape reverses to show off the label’s signature check. Made in Italy from a soft wool-blend, it has a high, mock neckline and oversized fit. It’s the perfect piece to keep you warm on cooler days.

See by Chloé

See by Chloé cotton-blend cape,

This military-inspired cape from See by Chloé is crafted from a navy cotton blend and is accented with rose gold-toned snap buttons that immediately catch the eye. Layer yours over fine knitwear when there’s a chill in the air.

Roland Mouret

Roland Mouret Astaire embroidered,

Roland Mouret’s Astaire cape is intricately embroidered with an ornate floral pattern in red, navy and black. Showcasing the designer’s elegant approach to modern formalwear, it’s cut to sit neatly at the shoulders and flow flatteringly over the body.

Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen wool and cashmere,

Rendered from a combination of wool and cashmere, this throw-on cape from Alexander McQueen exudes ladylike luxury. The bubblegum-pink design falls elegantly on the shoulders, while the artfully draped shape flares out gently as you move.

Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant Huan fringed striped,

Isabel Marant’s Huan cape illustrates the AW18 collection’s bohemian spirit and was worn in one of the opening looks on the runway. It’s cut to a relaxed A-line shape, and the fabric is woven with horizontal stripes and finished with fringed edges.

Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta checked wool and cashmere-blend,

This Italian-made cape from Bottega Veneta is cut from a soft blend of wool and cashmere printed with this season’s popular checks in tonal-grey and red. Cinch it with a belt to temper the loose silhouette.
