  1. Thinking of getting a capelet & was wondering what you all thought of this. I've never had one before. Do you think they are just a trendy seasonal thing or will this style move into a "classics" catagory? TIA!

  2. Ooh, I like that! Herringbone is always a classic--I'll bet you could carry it into future seasons without a problem. But get more opinions, too. :yes:
     
  3. Would be better if in black
     
  4. I think it's cute, but highly limiting. Because it's so volumous it would look poorly with a full skirt or anything not fitted and slim. I'd say it's trendy. A shorter caplet may be more successful.
     
  5. It's really cute but I don't think it will last. If someone had told me last year that capes were going to be in I would've laughed. I agree a shorter one or a short-sleeved one maybe would work a little better so you can at least wear it through spring.
     
  6. i also think a shorter capelet will be more versatile.
     
  7. Thanks everyone. I pretty much wear jeans everyday so that's how I was invisioning this. With jeans & boots or ballet flats. I agree that a short one would probably be more versitile. I don't want to spend alot of $$ on something that I will only be able to wear a couple of months before it dies out.
     
  8. I love it! If you wear it with jeans it'll always look good!
     
  9. I think it's cute, how warm is it?

    also where is that from, I would like soemthing liek that for myself?
     
  10. I think it is very cute, but not very warm. So if you are wearing it in california or a moderate climate, it will be lovely, but not for the northeast.
     
  11. ^ It's from Ann Taylor Loft. We are moving to Florida next year so I was actually hoping it wouldn't be too heavy. This year I'm in the midwest so I could layer underneath. Heck, I might never end up wearing it in Florida :P
     
  12. I like it a lot and think it would look great with the things you described. It would an unusual twist to your outfits!
     
  13. i love it! i think it's def. a classic!
     
  14. Thanks for all your feedback girls! I decided to go for it. I have a 20% off coupon so what the hey:P Thanks for helping me decide. I hope it looks as good on me as the model. I can guarantee I'm shorter than her!
     
  15. I don't much like them, but if I had to choose I would go with a short one...
