Cape blazers are all the rage and it seems everywhere I turn I see them.

I do not think this trend is going to be around for year’s to come and because of that if you are going to pick up this trendy piece I think the Nasty Gal Champagne Taste Cape Blazer is the best way to go. It is only $68 and available in a variety of colors, navy, black, and red:
What do you think of this trend?
