3 Ways to Wear – The Zara Cape

OMG it’s Friday! And as has become tradition on EMMAMILLER.COM (duh, since last week!), I’m showing you what a thrifty shopper I can be by wearing one hero item from the high street, in three ways!

This week it’s the turn of the cape! – * makes a pun about hero items and capes *

1. First up, the fashionista that means business.Emma Miller, model & fashion blogger - 3 Ways to Wear it - the cape - look 1

If it’s Monday morning and you turn up to work in a cape then damn! Home girl has her act together.

Promotion? Check. Pay rise? Check. Secretaries quivering in their Louboutins? Check and check!

Everyone else can go home. You have officially won the week.

Layer your cape over a polo neck sweater to show you won’t suffer fools and finish the look with a pair of tailored flares to show you like fashion but you’re not a slave to it.

2. The fashionista that watches back-to-back Gossip Girl on NetflixEmma Miller, model & fashion blogger - 3 Ways to Wear it - the cape - look 2

Do you dream of holding court at the MET steps, while ruling Constance Billard School for Girls with an iron fist? Well this Blair Waldorf Saint Laurent SS15 inspired look is the one for you.

Layer a white blouse complete with a pussy bow, beneath a plaid dress and pair with over the knee boots for look that says I may be young, fun and terribly chic, but I won’t take any prisoners if it comes to it.

3. And finally, the fashionista that prefers Taylor Momsen to Taylor Swift. JK I’m a Swifty!

I may well be a wearing a dress over another dress but this is NOT a case of being overdressed. In case you haven’t noticed it’s winter outside? * Rolls eyes  *

Match your cape with a lace trim dress and a pair of chain metal ankle boots for a look that says yes, I have a fashion blog and yes I’m really into live music, so what?
