In a season of statement coats, the cape is King. Whether you opt for the purist Alexander Wang style or brave the chill in an outdoorsy, Erdem version, there are a few simple rules to ensure you pull off the Batman cut.

Opt for an over-sized clutch or short handled bag like this music bag and youre good to go.More
