Always aiming to step out looking stylish and wearing the latest looks, we at SPICE turn our attention to the catwalks for new wardrobe inspiration – noting the trends that designers have decided are ‘next’.
And, with the cape detail seen sweeping its way down the ramp at the 2015 Lagos Fashion & Design Week, it’s clearly the thing to be seen in next season, whether one’s hitting a red carpet or doing the rounds at poolside parties.READ MORE: OUR NEW MUST-HAVE – THE COOL CAPE DETAIL!
But it’s not next season we should start donning the detail – it’s now, with stars on the red carpet at the 2016 Golden Globes already rocking the look (including Jennifer Lopez, Taraji P. Henson and Uzo Aduba); Nollywood actresses Genevieve Nnaji and Omatola Jalade-Ekeinde sharing pics of their caped-blazer ensembles; and now singer Seyi Shay being seen wearing a cape-topped dress on the January/February’16 edition of TW Magazine.
