Style Diary: Caps & Capes

Happy Friday!
Last night I headed out to dinner in Tribeca, but took a slight detour beforehand to catch the sunset by the Pier. For a crisp autumn day, I decided to hop on the cape trend by throwing a Via Spiga Asymmetrical Cape over an Elizabeth & James button down and Seven for all Mankind Jeggings (adding a belt for definition):

I topped the simple fall look with my favorite new acquisition: a Rag & Bone Floppy Brim Wool Fedora.

Sure black and black can be a bit boring, so I accented the look with a vintage snakeskin oversized clutch and a touch of Ruby Woo lipstick:

I also added just a bit of sparkle with a pair of Bling Hoops from Shop Loveys

Along with a Kenneth Jay Lane leopard ring, bling bangles, and a metallic mani from Polish Bar of Brooklyn:

And there you have it:
