Plaid Cape Coat
Hi, friend! Well, it has certainly been a minute since I have gotten a blog post out! It’s been a super busy holiday season already and it’s only the beginning of November. On top of busy season, we had a family wedding, where I got nominated to be coordinator by default, last weekend; so I am catching up now that that’s underway! It was a gorgeous day though and it was so great to catch up with family. Anyway, since we have some cool fronts coming up, I had to share one of my new favorite pieces, my new plaid cape coat from Red Dress Boutique, with you all because it will definitely be on repeat this fall/winter season!
I will be honest, I was questionable before buying it because I didn’t know how it would fit since I’m so petite; but, when it came in, I was so glad I took the plunge because I’m loving it! It matches with so much and can be dressed up or down very easily!

First, versatility is it’s middle name! Like I said, it can be dressed up or down so easily. You would think that a plaid cape is pretty specific but this can be styled so many different ways from mixing it with other prints to pairing it with all denim to dressing it up with a skirt. Just remember, if you pair it with other prints, just make sure they’re in the same color family. My three favorite looks are pictured throughout this blog for inspo.

(Denim top is similar because mine is from last year and jeans and boots are updated version. Jeans TTS – I’m wearing 0 short)
Second, it’s a “one size fits all” and it fits great! I’m an x-small and my mom is a medium and it fits both of us great! The way it is designed, super soft and not stiff at all, it is a true one size fits all and I’m usually not a firm believer in that size. And by “usually”, I mean never … until this coat because it is legit!
Shop my look:
(White turtleneck is similar because my is old and shoes are almost identical because mine are from last season)
Last but not least, it is so cozy! It’s lightweight but still so cozy and comfy. It’s definitely perfect for our recent cool fronts and I’m excited to style it for even colder weather in the upcoming months. My mom loves the fact that she doesn’t have to take a sweater with her places because she can just drape this over her shoulders; and, if she gets chilly, she can just put her arms through. Her and I are always freezing so this is perfect of us!
This cape has been one of my best sellers so far; so, if it’s your jam, hurry because it may not last long. Definitely tag me in your pics so I can see how you styled it and share them in my Insta-stories! If you have any questions, feel free to comment below or contact me!
