The word ‘cape’ just sounds hotter than the word ‘poncho’, am I right? Toward the end of winter there comes a point when you just can’t look at your coat anymore, and that is where this fun garment comes in. A cape transitions nicely to summer! Throw it over your shoulders on a chilly night. Worried about too much volume in your arms? Button them up to create bobbled sleeves any old school bullfighter would kill to wear. Play this bold look up by choosing a bright color, or keep it neutral to work El Matador into your everyday wardrobe.
