Capes, Ponchos and Cardigans for Autumn 2011

The wardrobe transition from summer to autumn can be a difficult one, especially in a place like the UK where the weather can be so unpredictable.  You want to be warm but you don’t want something too heavy to wear nor to carry should the weather heat up half way through the day.  On the other hand it can be useful to have something to throw on over your outfit to give a hint of autumn romance without feeling like you’re baking under it.


For autumn/winter 2011-12 think autumn leaves, warm hues, 70s colour tones and black, white, and metallic.


Check out these comfortable, light weight ponchos, capes and cardigans for an easy wardrobe transition into the new season without the burden of carrying a jacket.
