IT’S a trend that's spanned the decades. Now the cape has returned to become one of the biggest fashion stories of autumn/winter 2010. Capes peppered this season’s catwalks and the high street has swiftly followed suit.

Practical and stylish, there’s a version to suit every taste and budget. From the sleek and understated, to attention-grabbing knitted designs, the choice is vast. Capes provide a versatile option to the winter coat and look equally chic teamed with skirts, trousers or even tailored shorts.

The new collection from Pied a Terre, at House of Fraser, includes a beautiful wool camel cape-a great investment but at £180. While those on a budget will adore Primark’s military style version at just £25.
