A History of the Blanket Cape
In 2009 draped shawls and capes graced the runway at Mara Hoffman, Valentino and many more.
In 2012 Harpers Bazaar claimed that, “Your grandmother’s closet will be at the top of your shopping list next fall, with […] yes, shawls making the sartorial cut.”
In 2014 every celebrity was wearing the Burberry monogrammed blanket cape. Eventually trendsetters all over were filling their fall and winter wardrobes with these comfy yet stylish shawls. Layering them over jeans, or with tall boots and mini dresses.
Today, Fashion bloggers are flocking to the trend and it’s stronger than ever before. The blanket scarf, cape, shawl, is here to stay!
