I love this!!!

So glad my client didn’t want to buy this capelet (new) from me last year!  Fits beautifully through the waist, drapes well on the sides….great fit from the back (always check the back)!….For work I’m typically a dress and some sort of heels gal, but this is the perfect “cozy” for my Seattle weekend style.  To polish this off, I added long black leather gloves with rouched detailing + black boots.  Now if I only owned wine boots, stunning!

DETAILS:   Glamour shows plaid is still on trend for fall fashion, as are capelets.  I’m crazy about the sophisticated use of charcoal and brown – it’s understated enough you can pop it w/ an array of colors!   

What kind will you pick up?  Whether your vibe is casual, edgy, sophisticated, or classic….there’s a capelet for you!  Check out InStyle’s 10 Must-Have Capes to Update Your Fall Look!

…After doing a wardrobe analysis as a quick refresher for a long time client, I mixed some fresh fall wardrobe looks – utilizing a capelet which unbelievably, she’d never worn!

Photos are a fabulous way to go!  Uniquely Savvy “finishes the look” to the client’s desire or need.  Often times just the foundational pieces are requested, sometimes full head-to -toe- looks work best for those who want to get dressed “at-a-glance”!
