Style Skirmish: Capes vs. Vests

Here in our office, we’ve been debating the most stylish way to combat those frosty fall mornings! Because it’s not quite cold enough to bundle up in a coat, we tried to choose the best alternative for our autumn ensembles — would it be a charming cape or versatile vest?

Caught in this corn maze of cute outerwear, we’ve got to turn to you and see which side our followers are on! So tell us — which of these classic designs has you shivering with delight?

    Capes are gorgeous, but – vests. I need to be hands/armsfree if some spy sitch goes down. Spare material flapping around my arms would just in my way.

    Have I ever seen anyone in real life wear a cape over the age of ten? No. Do I see people wear vests? All the time. Vests are infinitely more practical.

    Capes! My arms want coverage when it’s chilly.

    I have a little brown plaid capelet, and it’s cute, but I always have a hard time wearing it… it’s too short to provide any real warmth, so it has to be more like a part of my actual outfit and I have a hard time pulling it off! I think I would love a full cape though. But that leather+fur vest is totally rockin. Can I have both? =)

    Still searching for that perfect cape! My issue with Modcloth coats is that the warmth level is far too low for a northern Ontario winter.We get weather down to negative 40 degrees, plus wind chill. Does Modcloth have any intentions of trying to get a hold of warmer coats?

    Capes, here in Paris capes are more fashion these days.
