Pull off the superhero look this fall and wear a cape
Capes are everywhere this season; in all colors, lengths and materials. It's actually one of my favorite looks - stylish in the front, superwoman in the back. They're also universally flattering. You can belt it to define your waist or not for a very off-the-runway look. One of my favorite investments this season is a short, black wool cape, which I cinch together with my favorite belt. Since the cape defines the shape of the outfit, I prefer to go skinny and minimalist on the bottom.
