Step Away from the Hoodie: From Class to Classy

There it is—your beloved, oversized, slightly dirty, very wrinkled from laying in a heap in your laundry basket before you took it out to wear it one last time—favorite hoodie. Even if you have plans after yoga class, even if you have a lunch date with your girlfriends, errands to run and you want to impress Dante, the cute Italian guy who just started going to class and you can’t help notice during forward bend pose (in your defense, his mat is right in front of you), even considering all that, you pull out your favorite old hoodie and throw it on. Luckily, this fall we have a solution to your sweatshirt addiction—capes and ponchos. They’re easy, funky, warm and they aren’t a dirty hoodie you picked up out of the laundry basket.

Levi’s Hooded Cape is cute, comfy and casual ($177.20 on Asos).
