Dressing for the weather in between seasons can be tricky, especially when you want to make your favorite new pieces work for a variety of different temperatures. Unless you have an unlimited shopping budget–and frankly, unlimited time–this can be tough or outright impossible. Instead, investing in seasonal staples that you can layer over more transitional pieces will help you concoct an endless combination of outfits. This season we’re championing the Cleobella capelet in our Fall box as the ultimate seasonal styling piece. Allow Kat Tanita to illustrate how to add warmth and style to classic transitional pieces with the addition of the Box of Style cape and belt.
When you’re struggling to make it to work on time Monday morning, you can’t really go wrong with this outfit. A great pair of dark skinny jeans and black pumps are something everyone has some iteration of in their closet. Team with a simple black silk tank that becomes perfectly fall appropriate underneath the oversized knit capelet.
For a more elevated look, swap out jeans for a pair of sleek trousers. While black seems like the obvious choice, we suggest a rich neutral like the camel hue Kat is wearing for a less predictable look. Belt the capelet closed over a simple long sleeve sweater and accessorize to your liking — a felt hat adds a bit of bohemian flair while a statement bag provides classic polish.
Fall date-night outfits can be tricky, but striking the perfect balance between sexy and warm is a cinch with the addition of layers. Whether you choose to wear a short slip dress or a floral maxi, top your look with the capelet as an on-trend solution for a chilly night. Strappy sandals, a small clutch, and a dainty necklace complete the look.
