Lately Loving: Leslie Tessler Capes

Leslie tessler cape fall fashion

A cape is not, perhaps, the most practical item of clothing you will ever own. But it is one of the most enchanting. Especially if it's by Leslie Tessler. The New York and Buenos Aires-based designer has taken this already magical must-have and elevated it to something positively spellbinding. Prepare to twirl like a fairytale princess in her pieces.

Each one has thoughtful details like roomy inner pockets for your phone and keys. You can customize elements like button choice. The drape on these beauties has me thinking Grace Kelly herself would have been a loyal customer. The color options–basic navy, brights, herringbone, flame stitch, in materials like cashmere, wool, and silk–have me I'm feeling spoiled like royalty indeed.

The Leslie Tessler lookbook has my mind racing with styling options. From feminine with a skirt and boots, to casual in jeans and oxfords, I'm only slightly regretting letting the moths eat my old vintage cape. Because now I have an excuse to pick up one of Leslie's charming updates on this age-old favorite. And hmmm…I'll need some elbow length gloves too…
