I apologize to my readers that live in normal parts of the world where summer means sunshine, but it’s been raining in Vancouver non-stop for weeks. Honestly, I haven’t had a chance to wear my summer clothes yet and Pre-Fall and F/W are already on the racks. 

One great thing about August and September is the abundance of wicked raincoats, like this cape by DVF! It’s so crazy chic, whether worn in the summer over a short dress or with heavier layers in the fall. I particularly appreciate the clean lines, the chocolate brown lining and, of course, the super convenient hood — hands free! It would look so great with the Cambridge Satchel.
$575 US at Net-a-Porter
PS. For a cheaper version, sans the hood, check out this $69 cape by Zara.
