Another trend is strutting towards the limelight and this one is a free-flowing blouse or jacket that sort of hangs on the shoulders. This trend goes by the name cape outfit– cape blouse, cape jacket, cape gowns. Below are a few ways to pair the cape outfit.

Cape top and pant trousers.

This look is part of the Nouva Couture 2016 Spring/Summer Collection and the outfits are gorgeous. They mostly involve office wear. Here, cape top is paired with high-waist pants so well that you just want to snatch it from the picture. This outfit looks so good it’s unreal

Also from the Nouva Couture collection. A plain colored cape top is worn over a floral body con dress and it gives off this elegant look. You could also wear a cape top over a pencil skirt – high-waist if the top isn’t long enough.
