Sweater Cape

I bought this sweater cape from Belk with a gift card my grandparents gave me. I saw it hanging on the rack and was drawn to it immediately, but I couldn’t decide if  the cape style would be flattering or if the cut and color would be easy to pair with other pieces I own. There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a top, only to realize you have nothing to wear it with.

Eventually, I decided the sweater cape would work out just fine. And I’m glad I did.


First of all, I love the cape style of this sweater. While I was concerned about whether or not it would be flattering, I think it worked out perfect. The cape style makes this sweater so cozy.


Second of all, I love the almost ombre effect of the color. While I still can’t jump on board with the ombre hair color, I think it works really well in this sweater cape. It adds interest and makes it easier to pair with jeans, colorful pants, or even plain dress pants. I chose a pair of brown jeans, a bold long sleeve top, and leopard print flats for this look.

Would you wear a sweater cape? How would you style it?

  1. These colors look fantastic on you. I love the pop of muted color peeking out from the poncho and the leopard print. That looks like a cozy, super versatile sweater!
