How do you wear a cape?? Are they flattering? Larger chest advice please!
Hello! I've bee eyeballing a few capes on various websites, casual types, but want to know how exactly you wear them? Just drape over shoulders and hope it stays on? Would fastening with a big kilt pin look naff?? And are they ever flattering for larger chests? Thanks in advance for any advice and opinions!
Oh pretty, I have a similar cut one from accesorise. They do hold up quite well and I used to flick one end over my shoulder if it got cold. Mine also has a sem across both shoulders to give it a bit more grip and looking on the pattern that one does too. I have seen people fasten with a belt rather than a pin, I think unless you have a gorgeous statement pin that could look a bit old fashioned
I think the pin would be a bit much, and it wpuld be a right old faff to put on, as you'd need one hand inside to make sure it didn't go through and wreck your clothes. Belted if it's really windy or you need free hands.
