The Perfect Outfit: Choose A Cape As Your Springtime Wrap

Louise Ebel, the French blogger and street style muse at Miss Pandora has gotten us bemoaning our unlucky selves for not snatching up our own Zara cape when it was still on sale. No matter, though—with a look-alike shawl, we can drape it over our shoulders this spring for a similar effect, or wear it scarf-style during the winter. She effortlessly pulls off a brown cape without looking like Obi-Wan Kenobi, and when paired with some over-the-knee suede boots and loose khaki shorts, it makes for a casual yet stylish outfit to wear on days when you need a little warmth. We've picked some affordable pieces to help you mimic the look.
