Lloyd says the cape is a flattering look for women of all ages. "Remember, if you're fuller on the top, ladies, you can hide it with a cape and you can do slimmer on the bottom," Lloyd says. "You don't want full things on the bottom."
For the 30s look, Lloyd chooses a bright yellow poncho-slash-cape piece with knee-length shorts and tights, all from Nordstrom. "You can belt it in and define your waist or let it out if you had to do it," he says.
Lloyd suggests that a woman in her 40s wear a cape like this one from Saks Fifth Avenue adorned with toggles, a cute metallic skirt and dark tights from Spanx.
