Today's Everyday Fashion: The Plaid Cape

 Inspiration:  Express

Gray plaid cape with gray sweater and black jeans

This inspiration photo made something old in my closet feel new again. I haven't worn this cape in several years, but the prints are similar and I couldn't wait to try it with a similar black and gray outfit. I like the inspiration coat shape better (and I love the budget-friendly options below), but in cases like this I'm happy to settle for what's already in my closet to save some money, and get good use out of what I already have. Would you wear this look?
