Dressing for bipolar fall can be a tricky proposition, but this season's cold-weather staple, the cape, bids farewell to upper arms with an easy swish across the shoulders—no fussing with toggles or drawstring ties necessary. Dressed-down or buttoned-up, insouciant yet with a hint of the theatrical, the cape (and its closely related kin, the capelet, cloak, and poncho) is one part fairy tale princess, part
masked crusader. From short and swingy to ankle-grazing and flowing here are 14 eco-friendly coverups to give the oncoming frost the cold shoulder. Above, the Concha capelet ($128) by Adhesif.
