The adorable check wool/cashmere cape from Burberry is no longer only for the socialites and personal style bloggers with money, it´s also now for the stylish little + big girls whose mom is equally stylish and whose pocket is deep.
I´m a big fan of capes, the way they swing and their ability to transform even a simple outfit. Capes are really a versatile piece for layering. You can even wear it as a scarf!
But back to the girls … how can your baby wear this fashion-forward Burberry check cape? Here´s an outfit I suggest.
Take a contrast-collar smocked dress in black, I love the peter-pan collar of this Ralph Lauren dress, and layer it with black tights (wine colored tights will work too), and then finish with some attitude-worthy (cat) ballerinas. Put on the check cape.
It´s important to bear in mind that a kid may have a harder time keeping the cape in place. To solve this, wrap the cape around her and fasten the front with a slim belt. If it´s not too cold, you can allow the back side to swing like cape does.
I love how the Burberry Mini Crossbody Bag extends the awesomeness of the cape, they´re really a match.
Notice that each piece in this look matches the colors from the check. This style technique always works. Another technique is to go for complementary colors. What colors complement wine, black and tan?
