New York City Style

The NYC Cape

February 19, 2016

When I was younger, I wore a lot of ponchos. It was that age where one made really, but really, bad fashion choices. At that time, I didn’t know anything of fashion and wore whatever I found in my closet. To this day I think why ponchos? Especially why pink, glittery, tacky ponchos? I guess, in one way or another, we all go back to doing things we did when we were little – it’s just a part of us. So, when I started seeing that capes/ponchos/wearable blankets were starting to become a ‘thing’ again, I decided to cave into my childhood obsession. I very discreetly bought cape against my better judgement and just went for it. Funnily enough, it’s been a great investment so far.


At this point, I’ve gotten to thinking that capes/ponchos, whatever you want to call them, are wonderful. You feel like you’re your own superhero, flying across the streets. Honestly, I love it, but I understand why many people don’t or refuse to enjoy them. They’re a difficult accessory to pull off sometimes, and often it can go terribly wrong. Still, like anything in fashion, it’s worth giving it a try.
