When the snowy weather comes to town it can be challenging to try to stay warm and chic at the same time. I definitely own a large down puffy jacket, but save that for more casual days. My solution for chic warm outerwear is to invest in a great cape. You can fit various layers underneath (including a thick warm sweater or two) and avoid having to a tack a “wide load coming through” sign on your back as the cape perfectly conceals any bumps or lumps. When I found this vintage cape it was love at first sight. It originally came with outdated brown plastic buttons which I swapped out for a a green metal pair to give it a new lease on life. Don’t let a little DIY scare you off of a great piece! Also if the rest of your ensemble is more muted or black add a little intrigue by wearing your accessories over your winter gloves! Cheers!
