Office Superhero + Under $25 Holiday Gift Guide.

As it turns out, you can mix up your office style without pinging HR’s “Dressed Inappropriately” radar. Enter: the blazer cape.

I started jonesing for a blazer cape after seeing it pop up in a few fashion mags. Want, need, must have. Finally pulled the trigger on this gorgeous and suuuuuuper affordable version from Nasty Gal. (Seriously, under $75 for a blazer? Yes. And with a cape option? Double yes.)

I wore mine to the office with classic trousers and a sheer plaid Portofino shirt from Express, working in a little gold from BaubleBar and a little red with a pointed toe pump. What I love about the blazer cape is it works both as a 9-5 option and over a t-shirt + baggy boyfriend jeans for a spin on weekend chic. (Bonus: it also comes in ivory and burgundy. I want them all.)
