    One of the most dramatic fashion trends from last season, the cape, is back at Dolce&Gabbana, Valentino, and Alexander McQueen among others.  Capes are beautiful and stylish but there are some simple rules to make them look absolutely fabulous.                                                                   

    When you wear a cape keep everything else narrow or covered up. A short cape looks best over narrow pants or skirts. Keep your hose, shoes or boots all toned to match for a long look.
