Last winter I visited a very stylish clothing-designer friend of mine at her New York office before grabbing lunch. (She's the type who always looks polished, even when she's at home by herself!) After a few minutes of chatting, she excused herself to get her jacket and returned wearing a cape. A cape! It was then that I realized I too needed to wear a cape. There's something out-and-out sophisticated and elegant about a cape--or maybe it just makes me feel like my superhero stylish friend. This one by Gap is perfect.
