Get Cape, wear cape, fly

Capes were massive on the AW10 catwalk with everyone from Missoni and YSL to Alexander Wang cloaking their models.

Aviator jackets have saturated the high street and the cape is creating the iconic shape for this Autumn and Winter. Best of the high street buys are these numbers from Dorothy Perkins (£65), M&S (£125), New Look (£45) and Michael Kors (£180)

Top of the class is this Camel Cape from Tu at Sainsburys. Bread, check, milk, check, two AW10 trends in one coat- CHECK!

If you are also a bicycling fan then capes are the perfect wear for your two wheeled adventures. Bobbin Bicycles in London's Islington has a range of classic capes in tweed.
