Last Sunday I brought you the first of a Steal My Snag series that will be taking the place of regular outfit posts until the weather warms a bit and I can get outside. The first look I helped you steal was my "Picking Pansies" retro sweater (see here). Today I'll be helping you steal my "Fox & The Houndstooth" look with an emphasis on my 1960s cape. Mine is a black and white knee length houndstooth in a wool/acrylic blend. It is lined in cherry red with a mandarin style collar and large woven frog closures to the waist. See the original post with all my outfit details here. Below is a sampling of different cape styles to help you recreate my look or inspiration to create your own.
Flowy fun on the left and structured mod on the right

For those that prefer hip length
If you prefer a burst of color on the outside...
Lined in Red
...or want to keep it under wraps
To add your own spice and flair
If you tend toward a warmer palette
Plaids and Checks
Maybe houndstooth isn't your thang...
