This girl, who was spotted on the streets by The Sartorialist, shows us how to style the look with ease.

The trick to wearing a printed cape is to keep the rest of your outfit easy, straightforward and simple. You should keep the colors contained to neutrals, like shades of black and grey. Take a look at our stylish subject: she lets her cape do the talking pairing it with almost all black, from her boots to her saddle bag to her tights. A plain grey sleeve pokes out from underneath.

Get this look by pairing a Mini Cloak Jacket ($600) Lindsey Thornburg with this Fine Gauge Sweater Dress ($89.99) by Shae. Add these May Washed Laced Brogue Flat Boots ($215.53) by H By Hudson and then finish it off with this Idolized Small Saddle Bag ($59) by Freebird by The Sak.

    I want one. But then I live in a tropical country and I have nowhere to wear them to.
