AW 10/11 Trend Focus: Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. (& other coat trends!)

Seen on the catwalks for labels including Emilio Pucci, Diane Von Furstenberg, Micheal Kors, Stella McCartney and Burberry, capes are one of the outerwear shapes to be seen in this AW.

Aviator Jackets are also big news this winter. It's definately worth investing in a quality leather version which will last well and will look even better the older it gets!

Other trends we've been seeing is detailing on coats. Such as exposed zips, fur collars (Burberry) and knitted collars (Prada). Grab a camel coloured version (as seen on Prada & Zac Posen) to combine two of this autumns biggest trends.

So hot off the catwalk....

  1. Love the pom poms on the FCUK jacket, their jackets are always great quality too!
  2. Big fan of the military style of this ASOS cape.
  3. This Aviator Jacket is 100% leather outer and as well as the zip detailing being bang on trend, it also means you can remove the sleeves to transform it into a gilet for the slightly warmer winter days!
  4. This ASOS cape is a really thick knitwear piece which will keep you warm all winter - a great alternative to a heavy winter coat. Designers including Stella McCartney have been sending thick knitwear onto the catwalks this AW.
Sorry for the image heavy post! So, what style coat will you be investing in this winter?
