The Blanket Cape

The blanket cape... the trend that has made wearing 
a blanket in public socially acceptable.......

As I'm writing this it's a typical Autumn evening: A grey, dark sky that resembles a wintery atmosphere and I can hear the pitter patter of rain against my window. It's no secret that Autumn fashion is my favourite but one thing I've noticed is, as soon as the darker weather comes storming in my clothes become darker alongside it. This season I'm trying to break that habit and I'm going to start wearing brighter colours on a daily basis. I love matching my wardrobe to the colours of the leaves with burnt orange, camel and even burgundy but a hue that provides a nice contrast to the dark, grey sky is light pink. You all know how much I love to wear pink but I find it harder to wear in the colder months. But on a recent trip to Penneys I found two cosy items with a touch of pink that will be perfect for A/W wear....

I'm, of course, talking about this amazing blanket cape which has a soft, wool texture and feels oh-so-cosy on. I love layering blanket capes with jumpers for the ultimate cosy outfit but during the transitioning period I like to pair it with a lighter top with a jersey material. I found this gorgeous one which has pink, grey and light blue hues so it suits the blanket cape to a tee. I paired the cape with my light-wash denim jeans from Bershka as the colour compliments the dark navy hue, and I finished off the look with my burgundy floppy hat as I think burgundy looks beautiful with both navy and pink.

  2. I love that outfit, the blanket cape looks so cosy for Autumn/Winter. Am I right in thinking that Pennys and Primark are the same...? x
