Cape Dresses Are In

Amrita Karve

But not because it’s almost Halloween!

We are so delighted by this new trend: capes on dresses (better known as “watteau” in the fashion world” seem to evoke thoughts of Audrey Hepburn floating through at a party in the movie Funny Face or royal affairs. Remarkably, the cape dress can look quite flattering at any height or weight. Taller women could easily try the floor-length cape dress as worn recently by Meghan Markle (Safiyaa) at a state dinner in Fiji, or Kate Middleton (Alexander McQueen) in Norway. Another Safiyaa Cape Dress is still available at Saks in select sizes.

For shorter women, a cocktail length cape dress can be just as magical. Lela Rose always releases gorgeous collection of watteau dresses each season; this year, they come in hues of burgundy, royal blue, and silver. See this review of a Lela Rose Cocktail Dress from one of our reviewers.

The size I purchased (2) was about two sizes larger than my usual size because a size 0 was not available. I had it altered from a very experienced tailor (because it has boning) and it was absolutely stunning! I wore this to an elegant wedding at the Park Hyatt Hotel in NYC and it was the talk of the evening. Love the quality of this lela rose dress. I bet if I had bought a 0 it would have fit almost perfectly. I will definitely buy Lela Rose dresses again.
