Coat Corner: Black cape style jacket from Debenhams

Cape_jacket

Capes were one of last winter’s big outerwear trends, but the look is still hanging on in there this year, albeit in a slightly revised form.  This jacket isn’t as voluminous as some of the capes we showed you last year, which may make it a little more versatile. The dramatic shape is retained on the top half of the jacket, though, while the bottom half is more like a traditional pea coat, complete with waist tie and pockets.

There’s something very "Sherlock Holmes" about this one, so just add a Deer Stalker and magnifying glass to complete the look. Or, rather, don’t. It’s £80 from Debenhams.

    That is a cute coat! It would be a great way of wearing something a little bit different, but still retaining the traditional feel with the colour.

    Definitely some great coats you’ve picked out so far, and this is another one.
    When you live in a place nicknamed “The Sunshine State” coats aren’t often called for though. =(

    I love it! I’ve always loved the look of a nice cape, but I’d never seen a version I’d feel comfortable wearing, until now.
