Capes and cover-ups are a brilliant way to add coverage and glamour to your wedding-day outfit. Here are eight of our favourites from designer collections
The wedding cape is everywhere this season, included in multiple lengths and styles in lots of designer bridal fashion collections because this versatile fashion addition manages the difficult balancing act of being both practical and glamorous. For brides who want an ethereal extra layer but don’t do veils, capes are a brilliant alternative. They add elegance and texture to lift a plain gown and give a little extra coverage that makes them practical if you want a more modest and ‘covered up’ look for the wedding service. Did we mention that that they are so lightweight and easy to pack that they are a perfect romantic extra layer for the destination bride? With so many options and ways to wear them, we say that capes and capelets are this season’s bridal fashion superhero.
