Trend to 'Try' or 'Pass By' : Kim Kardashian, Kate Hudson and More Celebs Channel Their Inner Superheroes in Capes

Hi lovely people, you all will agree with me that Capes are no longer just for superheroes or vampires.
The fall runways — at show’s like Giambattista Valli, Alexis Mabille and Stéphane Rolland — all featured models flying down the runways in capes, solidifying their place as a fashion staple for fall and winter.
And now celebrities, from Kate Hudson and Rachel Bilson to Kim Kardashian to Jennifer Hudson, have been channeling their inner superheroes in the season’s new outwear must-have.
To show you how to pull off this superhero-inspired trend, we’ve rounded the caped crusaders who got it right.
I also think wearing a cape can be a bit tricky, easily appearing costumy or sloppy. So if you’re trying the cape out for the first time, sticking to solids is the easy way to go, with black being the most fail-proof day-to-night choice.

For a more casual look, turn to the season’s other classic neutrals: A camel, gray, or cream cape will look just as chic with a pair of leather pants, denim skinnies, or a printed dress.
Fit is also important, even with such a drapey item. With longer capes like Kardashian’s, find a cut that hits your leg at the knee so your silhouette doesn’t look stumpy.  Shorter capes should hit just past the hips and can work with shorter skirts or frocks.
Finally, keep the look streamlined by pairing with pencil skirts, sheaths, and slim-fit trousers and skinnies on bottom. To avoid looking too bulky on top. Also remember not  to wear a chunky sweater or multiple layers underneath.
I hope to rock to trend , but sure in my country Nigeria, lol.
