Now wearing the cape is a little tricky because it tends to come in thick material or long coats that are not suitable for the Malaysian climate. But of course, we won’t let such a trivial matter stop us now, would we? Here are some style inspirations to get you started on how to wear this style:

The key to styling this piece is keeping your other pieces clean and to a soft colour, avoid loud prints and accessories to complete the look
