Superheroes aren’t the only ones who wear capes, sometimes ordinary people do too. But we don’t always go for the red ones that Superman is known for. These capes can be seen on outerwear or incorporated with our tops and dresses.
Fall/winter 2017 runways showcased pieces with capes from Tommy Hilfiger, Christian Dior, and Chanel. Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa was also spotted wearing one for a shoot with Bayo.
So are you a long cape type or something more subtle? Choose from our picks below.
Sies Marjan Marnie Cape-Back Wool Sweater
For rainy day dressing, opt for this mint green sweater from Sies Marjan. It’s a simple piece with a flowy cape design at the back. Wear it with your skinny jeans or pair it with pastel-colored trousers. Available on Matches.
Daria Duchess Cape Top
The print on this reminds me of fine China plates. It also has an Oriental feel with its high collar and crisp white color. On the other hand, the cape can also keep you warm if needed. Available on Zalora PH.

Show off some skin with this Bershka bodysuit. The capelet, which sits on the shoulders, is made of sheer lace that highlights your shoulders. Feel free to wear this at the beach or a music festival. Available at SM Aura Premier.
