Queen of Style: The Grand Capelet

Posted by on 30 Aug, 2010

Nothing melds fashion forward with vintage style quite like the capelet.  At once both old school glamour and, depending on the cut, avant garde.  The capelet is a daring accessory for the ultimate center-of-attention bridezilla.

For true grab-the-spotlight flair, take on a cape that in itself makes the gown.  Feel all eyes hang on your every swish as you glide through your event of a lifetime in a Monique Lhuillier cape as modeled by invitation designer Christine Van Duyn on her wedding day.

Take dreamy wonderland to new heights in a doll-like fashion with a cinched waist and rib-length cape found at Wedding Inspirasi.  For a soft, carefree and almost indie vibe, go the handmade route and check out Holly Stalder’s ruffled shoulder capelet and more in her collection on Etsy as well as her feature in Summer Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine.

Take inspiration from none other than Miss Harlow, one of Hollywood’s most notorious glamour queens.  Bring a grand sense of drama and panache to the affair with the ever-chic capelet.
