Living in the Midwest means unpredictable weather. The temperature might go from 40 degrees in the morning to 65 degrees by noon, which can make choosing an outfit tricky. Layers are a staple for Midwest living, but is there a perfect jacket for every season?

If that jacket does exist, it comes in the form of a cape. Capes are outer garments that drape the back, arms and chest by attaching at the neck. No matter what top you are wear, capes fit over any bulky sweater or thin blouse.

The more modern cape jacket or cape coat resembles a cape but gives your body a more defined look. Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe have options around $30, and fancier styles can reach $3,000 at Burberry. Most cape jackets cost around $100-$300 at stores like Nordstrom, Macy’s, Lord and Taylor and Calvin Klein.

You can find capes for any season, and styles vary. You can choose from numerous options for color, shape, pattern and weight to find the perfect one for your wardrobe. Make sure to try on a few different options so you can find the best fit.

Cape coats can flatter many different body types with a correct fit, and this timeless look is a great staple for your closet. Cape coats will give you the warmth and flexibility you desire while looking polished and chic.
