Top ten trends for the new season

Autumn/winter 2008-09 fashion trends: capes


A Batman-inspired trend, the cape is making an elegant, original comeback. Expect to see mini and maxi capes in a variety of colours, in buttoned or loose styles.

How to wear them
capes go perfectly with narrow skirts for ultra chic style, and also look good with narrow trousers and short skirts. They don't go with casual clothes, but if you're going smart you can't go wrong with a short black or grey cape.
