Today we’ve got a really special post from Cape Vertigo designer Leah Coccari-Swift, who styled out some really fun ways to wear your Cape Vertigo. You may still be in the thick of it with holiday knitting (Christmas is in ONE WEEK! GAH!), but start dreaming of when you can cast this beauty on. Be sure to snag the pattern on sale now for only $4!
From designer Leah Coccari-Swift: Have you been tempted by all the amazing cape styles out there this season? I know I have. Capes are a warm, stylish, practical way to stay warm when dressing up or down. They are very versatile and it can be a little intimidating to know how to wear them.
Let’s take a look at three different ways of wearing my Cape Vertigo pattern, shall we?
The first thing you should know is that Boots are a Cape’s best friend. Got some boots? You’re more than halfway there to creating an awesome #capelyfe look.
Look 1 – Like a Boss: Cape + Jeans, Jacket, Boots
Can’t Touch This
Wear your bad-assest boots, leather jacket and snug jeans. Wrap the cape loosely around your neck starting with one end and fling the other end over your shoulder.

…Or center the cape on your neck, gathering the length into some cozy ripples. Let it hang.
Look 2 – Sweet n Cozy: Cape + Dress or Skirt, Boots, Legwarmers or Tights
Cape + Dress or Skirt, Boots, Legwarmers or Tights
Wear a sweet skirt or dress, legwarmers or tights, and your favorite boots. Wrap the cape flat and tight around your neck, keeping the rolled collar exposed, for a smooth shoulder warmer.
Look 3 – 70s Office Glam (just go with me here): Cape + Dress Pants, Blouse, Gold Belt, Gold Bracelet, Gold hoop earrings, Attitude

Just drape it on top, casual-like. Yeeaaah girl. Now swagger.
Let’s continue to pretend I’ve photoshopped the remote shutter out of my hand.
Look 4 – On Your Lap: Cape + Sitting Down
Cape + Sitting Down
The coziest lap blanket of all time.
