Retro Style: The Capelet

For days when you need just the tiniest coverage for the chilly weather, try a capelet – the silhouette that’s a little bit retro style & a lot a bit classy lady.

Styling Kerrie, owner and maker babe behind Kitsune’s Closet and Darling gal (see her on Mondays at the shop!), was a fun experiment in Mod-meets-Paris. Her natural knack for retro style made this outfit playful, whimsical, and oh-so-chic.

The houndstooth cape mixed with the soft cashmere turtleneck, the sassy Anthropologie mini skirt, and those J. Crew heels came together with Kerrie’s own personal flare (like those fishnet tights and that insanely awesome hair color), and, of course, her very own Kitsune’s lipstick. Don’t forget the locally made vintage button earrings by Pip’s & Co. for an added touch.

What do you think of the capelet and this retro styled look? How do you like to mix retro elements into your outfits?
