Capes are for superheroes.

I've seen a few nice ponchos in the last few weeks. Capes might be fashionable but it's a hard look to carry off, especially if you aren't slim.

Wear what suits your shape, not what's 'in' - that's what I say!

Thread adjourned <bangs gavel twice>

oh yes

actually to be fair I just thought of that as I went into the kitchen

well Monsoon obv think it is 08 but you know better do you?

v high opinion of yourself you have for a mouse

I really like that!

I'm not sure that either ponchos or capes are terribly flattering to be fair.

They are up there with furry gilets in my list of things i want to wear but whenever i put them on i just don't look how i imagine i would.

But if you're willowy and tall i think that both can look good.

I like that Tutter, so are ponchos the new skinny jeans?

I never got round to wearing them either.... they just never seemed right on me.

MrsMattie Mon 15-Sep-08 21:29:03

I'm tall with big norks and , urm, 'curves'...

I just look stoopid in capes. Even the word 'cape' makes me cringe, actually. Mind you, poncho isn't a better word, is it?

I think I will make do with a few nice, cosy cardigains <old maid emoticon>

I had the most gorgeous cape...when I was about 8.

Cape = Florence Nightingale

EyeballsintheSky Mon 15-Sep-08 22:58:04

I'd be nice sewn up into a jumper...

<offers helpful suggestion >

i saw a lady weraing a poncho only two days ago. she looked lovely and stylish. and she was young and thin too

EyeballsintheSky Mon 15-Sep-08 22:58:47

No no, I wouldn't be nice sewn into a jumper. That capey poncho-y thing would be hmm

squatchette Mon 15-Sep-08 23:13:57

I didn't realise they were making a come back.Last time they were 'in' i almost lived in them dd2 was a baby so must have been um 4yrs ago,was breast feeding which found them great for.
Am now bfing dd3 (2wks old wednesday) so will look out for some in the shops.Think they look lovely and love the monsoon one.

CostaRicanCod Mon 15-Sep-08 23:19:17

i LIKEy the poncho tutter

think capes are too rigid to be flattering

CostaRicanCod Mon 15-Sep-08 23:20:16

I had a lovely red cape when I was about 3 in the 70's, I loved it, very little red riding hood.

Tutter Tue 16-Sep-08 16:09:05

Dropdeadfred Tue 16-Sep-08 16:12:03
