The Cape Crusade continues…

Double Breasted Cape, Long Tall Sally £85

It’s a well known fact in Fashion Land that The September Issue of Vogue is THE most important indication of the trends we can expect to be wearing over the next couple of seasons (anyone who watched the docu-film of the same name will understand the level of sheer hard work, attention to detail and downright ferocity that goes on in the editorial process).

So I won’t argue with page 215 of my UK edition, which suggests that capes are STILL having a fashion moment. How thoughtful then, that the lovely people at Long Tall Sally have created a DELICIOUS navy blue one.

I first encountered this military-buttoned wonder at LTS’s A/W previews… and have been waiting patiently to make my purchase ever since. Is anyone else reminded of The Duchess of Cambridge’s beautful McQueen coat, worn on her visit to Windsor’s Victoria Barracks in June? Light enough for the end of summer and baggy enough to wear over a jumper come winter time. Cracking.

  1. Sorry, I really don’t like this coat, the arms look like something made for someone much shorter!

  2. Fair point! I’ll stop my gushing! But I still think it will look lovely over winter knits 🙂 xx

  3. Love it! If only they stocked it in the Canadian LTS stores and I wouldn’t have to pay for shipping!
