10 Chic Winter Capes To Beat Your Seasonal Style Slump

It's officially March, the month that can tempt us with a temperate breeze one moment and dash our dreams with a blizzard the next. It's no wonder that stylish gals city wide might be feeling the winter blues. We think the easiest way to beat style boredom during a long, cold season is a chic spin on a necessity, and today we're talking outerwear. Yes, we have to bundle up, but we don't have to be bored doing it. Leave your parkas at home for a while, and step out in a chic cape that will keep you warm, lift your spirits, and collect compliments like none other (and — bonus! — possibly channel Gwyneth at the Oscars). Outerwear that enhances your outfit, rather than hiding it, is is the goal of any smart, savvy Chicagoan, and cute capes are a guaranteed win. Who knows, this end-of-season switch up might be just what you need to make it to the end of winter in high, superhero spirits.
