    Yes, we know it's cold and icy and awful out there, but it's not too early to look at pre-fall '14. Seriously — hear us out. There are (hopefully) only two more months of winter left, and you've already planned out your warm-weather wardrobe, so now it's time to look at what comes next. That faux season between summer and fall (or winter and spring) can require some tricky dressing, but we're here to help you master one of the most important — and easiest — styles: the cape.
