How to wear my navy blue cape without looking like I enrolled in the air forces

Bonjour,
 
I own a navy blue cape with chunky buttons and a high collar which has quite a military style to me, 
I’d like to make it look cooler. 
For the record, I have an indian complexion and I like skirts and dressed but also jeans. I love all colors yet one of my fav is mustard yellow, 
Thanks! 
Stéphanie
Hi Stéphanie,

Now that I have completed the outfits I too want a navy blue cape!

Here is how you could rock it

I just love mustard with navy blue… but it has been seen A LOT.

So rather than doing a color block style combo, I went for details like a flowy victorian blouse which sleeves and high collar that will graciously peek out of the cape.

I contrasted the large cape with tight jeans which used fabric brings a cool feel.

For the colors, I chose to oppose the cold shades of the big pieces toward the warm shades of the accessories.

Mom jeans
Brown suede boots

Don’t get me wrong, I am not suggesting you go pantyless under your cape.
Merely suggesting you to wear something shorter than the cape.
Then the look is all about beautiful tights, boots and creative accessories.
I was not so much for the scarf at first because it kind of gets in the way of the shape of the cape but it also softens the style which is what you are aiming for 🙂
Alternative shopping
Faux fur mustard collar

3/ Sexy rock parisienne

Once again, I balanced the large upper part with a super fitted and almost invisible bottom (aka legs).
The stars are your legs! Choose your tights wisely.
Alternative shopping
Mini gold skirt

4/ Hype bohemian

For this last style, I contrasted the masculine stiffness of the cape with the feminine fluidity of the skirt.
Navy blue looks always amazing with warm colors such as red, yellow and camel.
Alternative shopping
Flowy flower skirt
Hope I inspired you to wear your cape!
