The cape jacket has tons of different alternatives. You can have really shapeless one that essentially fits like a cape: button around the neck, no sleeves (1). Other styles (2) include ones with fitted sleeves, bell-shaped sleeves, or even a belt. All of these still give you the voluminous shape that this offers.
I've seen many jackets that I like, although I have not taken the plunge in purchasing one. The main reason why is because I get cold very easily. I'm usually the first person out of all my friends to bust out the winter jacket (the TNA ski parka that absolutely every Asian girl has) and it's usually not enough. I tend to wear many layers... Stockings, tights, additional socks, pants, tank top, tshirt, cardigan, scarf, hat, two pairs of gloves... and this is on a non-snowy day! So I know that these kinds of jackets probably won't be very functional for me (as in they won't keep me warm)... but I can still dream!
What are your fall lusts?
