Capes/Ponchos for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Appointment Version
Quote of the day: “Every morning is a fresh beginning. Every day is the world made new. Today is a new day. Today is my world made new. I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day.” Dan Custer
I tend to use the term cape and poncho interchangeably, but there is a definition for each. The cape is made out of a circular piece of cloth, whereas the poncho is made from rectangles. I have a hard time remembering what I had for breakfast, so I’m sure I use them incorrectly at times. But as long as you look good in the item, who cares? These same pieces were styled for a casual day here.
50’s Cape/Poncho: I actually have on my pink leather jacket under the poncho, so I’m using it as a wrap.

70’s Cape/Poncho: Here’s the cape with the matching belt. I added the scarf trying to bring out the blue from the skirt, but maybe a different blue scarf would have been better?
