I'm always months, seasons, years late with fashion trends, but I remember the rise of capes coinciding with the new interest in all things Holmsian. While BBC Sherlock renounced his cape and deerstalker for more modern garb, I think there is something essentially stylish in the cape - the silhouette, the expanse of fabric, the billowiness.

Throw your cape over trousers and boots, or over a little dress. Try a dress or skirt with a pretty hemline - lace-lined or patterned - so it peeks demurely out from the bottom of the cape. Counter the largeness of the cape with skinny jeans and heeled boots.

You can give the deerstalker a miss... or not.
