Going to the Cape

This trend caught my attention last season on Gossip Girl as Blair darted around town in a Kelly green cape matched with tall suede gloves.
Since then, I've had my eyes peeled for a more subtle version of the impossibly feminine and chic look. Here are some options I'm loving, and I'm closest to purchasing the military green option from Asos.
How do you feel about Cape's for fall?

  2. Only in New York could this work! :)

    One bad thing about me living in LA: it would look ridiculous to wear anything more than a light jacket.
