Madewell cape scarf in pinstripe (FA15 , E1740, $79.50) – I was so curious how this would work in real life. I expected it to drape like a cape, but I completely missed the stitched armhole when I viewed it online. So I was wondering how it would stay on as a cape. Turns out there are two slits you put your arms thru and the cape rests on your forearms or at your wrist.

For size reference I’m 5’0″. It’s closer to a draped blanket look than a shorter cape, but I didn’t feel like it overwhelmed me. I’m in the flannel sunday shirt. I think I’m in a S. I would get XS.
I love grey. Love the stripes. I didn’t find the wool to be itchy.
What a great item for travel by airplane or car. No need to worry about disagreements about temperature in the car if you have this to keep you warm.
There’s also the black cape scarf ($79.50).
