Pink Possibilities

This time, it’s pink. Another cape is here. This one has a cotton outer shell and a silk lining with a faux leather collar and side detail. Initially, I thought I would stick to only the contrasting collar, so the side detail was a bit of an after-thought, but ultimately it definitely completes it.

Something that I value in clothing is versatility. I mean, who doesn’t like their clothes to coordinate with more than one or two outfits!? And while sometimes versatility can be inherent to a particular article of clothing, it is also something that can be discovered in a wardrobe through some creative styling. For this post, I styled this cape in both a “dressed up” and “dressed down” aesthetic, and really the only thing I swapped to differentiate the two was a dress for some pants. It can be that simple. :)
