The Inbetweener



Thanks to the likes of Kenzo, Giles and Orla Kiely, whether you’re expecting or post-baby, the cape will be your new best friend. They were seen on the AW15 catwalks in pretty much every form; silk, waterproof, hooded…the list goes on; perfect for right now with the hot / cold / can’t make its mind up weather. Is it Autumn? Is it winter? Should I crack open the full on winter coat yet? The answer is no, invest in a cape which will see you through this inbetweeny stage.


Blanket cape £50 Hallhuber

If you’re very pregnant, avoid structured styles and go for a loose blanket style cape like the above from Hallhuber which will fall over your bump. These are also brilliant for post pregnancy and double up as a cosy feeding cover or emergency baby blanket!

The below style from Hobbs is ideal for working into your current wardrobe. It’d work for either the early stages of pregnancy when you’re still trying to conceal your tummy from prying work colleagues or post pregnancy, until you’ve lost that baby weight – and lets face it, it never happens as quickly as you’d hope; especially with all the coffee and sweet treats consumed, so you may as well invest in a decent cake concealer!
