    Styling yourself with a new look is super easy with an A Capella Cape. Here are 5 style tips showing how easily it blends with your existing DK wardrobe. We're calling these five completely unique looks Classic, Fun, Monochromatic, Transitional and Casual style.

Try this yourself by layering your cape over a longer printed tunic with leggings and a coordinating base layer that anchors the outfit with a harmonious colour. The Perfect Tee in Raisin matches both the Cape and Jacket perfectly.  Add a longer pendant necklace to complete your look.

    Fun Style: Give yourself a pop of unexpected colour and instantly upgrade your style with the cape worn open over the Jet Set Jumpsuit or any all black outfit. We love the playful, carefree attitude of this easy jumpsuit with platform sneakers of a complimentary colour to tie this outfit together. Viola looks ready for anything!

    Monochromatic Style: Diane shows us her best tip for dressing as a Petite Plus woman. Your cape adds the punch of colour when styling yourself with a head to toe monochromatic colour to maximize the look of height and longer legs. Of course this trick works for anyone that would like a slimming and/or lengthening illusion.  She looks amazing in the Midnight Inquisitive Tunic, and her killer Fluevog boots match in colour to keep the long line going.

    Transitional Style: It's too soon to go without a jacket so here's a way you can warm up your spring vibe. This modern look is balanced by adding the A Capella Cape worn open in a complementary colour to your top; keep cozy while adding interest and texture to your outfit. Shown here with the adaptable Pier Pants which are as cute with boots as they will be with a sandal in the spring.

    Casual Style: Punch up your casual look by adding an unexpected bloom of spring colour. Drape your cape over the Tempo Tunic in Navy with denim and you are ready to go. Perfect to ward off any chill while out on a stroll. There is only one left in several of our A Capella Cape colours so hurry if you want one!

    We hope you're having lots of fun twirling around in your capes too! Stay cozy!
