Cape Coats For Women

Want to wear a different kind of jacket that’s not only eye-catching, but one that’s warm and looks great with just about everything? Try one of the cape coats for women offered by Jolt Jacket, Steve Madden, Ellen Tracy, Jou Jou and others.

A cape jacket is kind of like a poncho with sleeves. Wear it with a belt for a fitted look or without a belt for a care-free style that really goes great with a favorite pair of jeans or slacks. A cape coat is for the woman who likes sleek and sophisticated clothing that is out of the ordinary but comfortable.

Cape coats can be gathered, fitted or loose--with long, three-quarter or short sleeves that let the shirt color peek out. For a casual yet really put-together look try a cape jacket with a pencil skirt and a matching close-fitting long sleeved top—maybe a turtleneck--in a light-weight fabric.

A cape jacket is generally loose fitting; the sleeves are usually described as “batwings”—meaning they’re wide and loose. That makes it easy to quickly throw a cape coat over other bulky warm weather clothing like sweaters and still keep everything smooth and in place. However, belted cape coats are great choices for those who want the cape coat to be a little more form fitting.

Unlike many wool coats, because cape coats for women are loose fitting, it's best to wear them over close fitting clothes so the overall look is not too bulky. They look especially nice when matched with skinny jeans for any casual outing where the extra warmth of a jacket will be appreciated. Try adding a cute pair of ankle boots with a knitted cuff that matches the cape in color to really complete the look.

It’s fun to wear something that’s different and out of the ordinary. Come and choose from a nice selection of cape coats for women today at Macy’s.
