I have expressed my love of blanket capes on numerous occasions. In fact, I think they are probably the best things that have ever been invented. I wore mine out the other day, and while yes, it did billow behind me like I was Severus Snape striding around, I WUVVED IT.
I think they’re quite a hard one to put an outfit together with though. You don’t want to wear anything too casual, in case someone genuinely mistakes you for a hobo. Equally, it’s not exactly like you can wear a blanket on a night out (however much we want to when the snow starts, and we have to totter about risking hypothermia). Anywho, I wore this one shopping and I was pretty happy with the overall look. At the moment, I physically can’t get these velvet leggings off of my legs. They’re such a winter staple, and thick enough to keep your legs from falling off. I also popped on my favourite leather look tee from F&F and these HUGE, HOLOGRAPHIC HEELS. Heavens and blimey, they are so beautiful. They kill my feet, but who the hell cares. They were in the sale in Primark, and only cost me £8. BAZINGA.
What do you think? Are blanket capes your new thang?
