The Secret Behind A Cape
Ideal to face the first morning frosts,
this part of a garment has a bigger meaning behind than you might have imagined.
Simple protection haven’t been
the only reason we started wearing them
During the Victorian Era, any woman with breeding and good societal standing was rarely seen in public without a cape which signaled to the rest of society that a woman was neat and clean.
In other words, this piece of cloth was a symbol
used by the elite classes to alert lower classes of the presence of noble ranking individuals.
The way a cape was worn or its style and length often denoted the woman’s status or occupation in life. The longer cape, the greater status was.
The clothes you choose are easily sending a message to those around you, but also to you, yourself. Forbes
