From Ecouterre:

Albeit one of the most fair-weathered seasons, autumn's fickle nature can make it a real pain to dress for.

Luckily, there's one garment that is the perfect medium between a bulky coat and a thin sweater - the cape! If you think that these surprisingly versatile pieces were just for the undead and phantoms of the opera, guess again.

There are plenty of perfectly stylish, on trend and sustainably made choices to pick from - check out Ecouterre's lineup of the best green cloaks capes, ponchos and capelets for the season.

Dressing for bipolar fall can be a tricky proposition, but this season's cold-weather staple, the cape, bids farewell to upper arms with an easy swish across the shoulders--no fussing with toggles or drawstring ties necessary. Dressed-down or buttoned-up, insouciant yet with a hint of the theatrical, the cape (and its closely related kin, the capelet, cloak, and poncho) is one part fairy tale princess, part masked crusader. From short and swingy to ankle-grazing and flowing here are 14 eco-friendly coverups to give the oncoming frost the cold shoulder. Above, the Concha capelet ($128) by Adhesif.
