Monday's NAP lust-have item

Back to school is officially on in London and there was a distinctly autumnal chill in the air this morning as I drove into the office. And of course, it's Monday morning... So let me cheer you all fashionistas up with my favourite item from this morning's "New In" section on Net-A-Porter.


I chose a little cape by A.P.C. as the trend for capes continues for something like the third AW in a row without any signs of weakening. I've bought a couple of capes in recent years and made some mistakes which I'm not keen on repeating...

First, I'll never again buy a knitted cape, as I don't like the drop of the material, it looks too rag-like for me, I prefer a cape with just enough stiffness to it, like this little number. Second, it is better to choose one with pockets as your hands are likely to freeze if you don't, especially if you match your cape with a bracelet sleeve top. And finally, it's nice to have a bit of a collar, or to wear a turtleneck sweater under a cape, since it looks odd to match a cape with a scarf. So really this one is perfect.
