of the cape
To outline your silhouette
combine it with straight or fitted trousers. The best contenders are the masculine style pants with darts, as the contrast with your lower body will reinforce the femininity of your figure.
If you are after a working-city look, beef it up with chunky country style or cowboy boots, mid-calf height and with or without laces.
If you are the creative type you are probably thinking more of a sporty shoe; if that’s the case I would advise more along the line of flat sneakers.
For a lady-like look which isn’t corny put on your Oxfords or any flat laced shoe.
Careful! If you are going to go for trousers, avoid heels because they will throw the look out of proportion.
Remember that the cape has so much movement in it that you need a really good base so that the lines of your body balance out and you don’t end up with “chicken legs” sticking out.
This garment looks amazing with a dress… but not a long skirt. Why? A dress controls your shape from top to bottom and it creates an aesthetically balanced and integrated optical effect with a bohemian feel. With a long skirt, however, because the shape starts much lower down, it shortens the silhouette substantially.
Hairstyle: The linear nature of this garment cries out for you to set your neck free, so my advice would be that whatever style you love, whether it’s an up-style, ponytail, chignon, neat and tidy or tousled, or even let loose and free, the point is that the hair and the clothing should be playing together within the same style.
Make up: Try to bring the focus to the lips with a pale glossy pink and a subtle touch of base in a similarly pink shade. If you are a little more daring, or you feel like adding a touch more sophistication to this cape, go for a more bronzed look using a base with brownish tones, peachier for darker skin-tones and paler for lighter skin with a colourless gloss on the lips.
Why did I design it this way?
Because the lines of this garment define the most beautiful part of the body: the shoulders which are where others’ vision naturally focuses on you. They are the reflection of your mood from day to day and so closely connected to your neck: their square shape makes the shoulders appear to be aligned with the hips and they balance out the figure.
