One of the best things about Spring officially being in the air is that I can finally ditch my Winter coat and start wearing some of my favourite Spring jackets. I love a classic trench and denim jacket pretty much any day of the week, but my new favourite thing to wear is this vibrant cape.

Also, can I just take a moment to say how thrilled I was to see Joan kill it on The Tonight Show last night? Jimmy Fallon really righted a wrong there. Now he just needs to get her to host for him if he ever takes a vacation.
In case you missed it.
Have a great weekend and remember, if there's anything you'd like to see featured on Fashion Friday, let me know!

There are a few things I feel you don't want a cape to do. This ain't cosplay, you don't want to come off as too Little Red or too Sherlock. You're not going to a Renaissance Fair (hopefully) so stay away from anything too floaty. I say stick with solid colours or a bold pattern and remember, capes are not ponchos. Keep it classy.
Some other capes I'm digging on:

So tell me, how do you feel about the cape trend? Would you rock it or would you be worried about coming off looking like Frank Costanza's lawyer?
