If you haven't already done so, you should really consider adding a cape to your winter wardrobe. One of the most prominent outerwear silhouettes to appear on the Autumn/Winter 2019 catwalks was the cape.

Cropping up at JW Anderson, Miu Miu, Balmain, Celine and Etro, there was plenty of support for the cape as the new coat. As you might expect, Chanel offered easy elegance, giving cropped capelets the tweed treatment in bold, bright colours.

Marc Jacobs channelled this season's animal prints with a showstopping three-quarter length one in leopard paired with wide-leg stripped trousers and a pussybow blouse. At JW Anderson, a fluid grey cape stole the show and the hearts of many. While at Burberry they were drapped over the classic trench in chic tonal looks. Whether worn to work with tailored trousers or worn over a cocktail dress, the style will instantly add elegance to any look.

Beard roller
 

With thousands of tiny needles that penetrate the skin, a dermal roller sounds much more intimidating than it actually is. This one from Copenhagen Grooming has been specifically created for beards and when gently rolled over the skin, it works to stimulate hair growth and even out patchy facial hair.

Top Tip

This season's chicest cover-up, capes have the power to elevate even the plainest of outfits. Pair yours with slim jeans, knee-high leather boots, and a simple knitted sweater for an effortless, everyday look.
