When Gwyneth Paltrow stepped onto the red carpet at the Oscars back in February wearing a sleek and sophisticated white Tom Ford cape dress, she was quickly and unanimously named the best dressed of the night—and now it looks like she set the trend in motion. Since that night, no less than three stars—Olivia Wilde, Katy Perry, and Sienna Miller—have been spotted in similarly stylish cape dresses, although none has quite gotten it as right as Gwyneth did. Now, the question on our mind is: would you wear a cape dress? If so, Alice + Olivia’s Cape Mini Dress ($368) and Shakuhachi’s Split-Sleeve Cape Dress ($135) might just be calling your name.
