Fashion tip : with Gloria Haguma

The cape. Every girl loves to own something new, and if you are looking for what to add to your closet, the cape is what you need.
One of my favourite looks from Lupita Nyongo’s red carpet appearances is the red dress clad with a cape that she wore to the Oscars. The cape is one of the hottest items to own right now, and it is probably a good substitute for a blazer. You can wear it in a casual, or formal look, or even glam it up like Lupita. Capes add good definition to your top, especially because they have structured shoulders. There are three different ways to wear this item. With a pair of jeans, you can add a vest underneath and then throw on your cape, for a great finish. For a second look, you can opt for an off shoulder dress and then drape on your cape. You can also wear your cape over a jumpsuit. The cape can also be a great styling option, as you can colour block it on your attire. You can also use it as a colour splash option to your look. The length of a cape can vary, so you can have it go up to your waistline, your midi or even down to your ankles. For instance, you can opt for a hot pink cape and wear it over your all-white outfit for a complete look. The easiest way to find one is to have it tailored or hire a professional like a fashion designer to tailor you one.
