>> ...Or at least that's what Veronique Branquinho purports. And I have to say, I'm with her on this one -- her collection does a good job of convincing me that capes can be pulled off, especially when built into a dress. The gothic tree print that showed up on a dress (right) and a couple of tops was absolutely breathtaking, as well as this mint green number remniscent of the Middle Ages (left). To round out my top three are the short overalls (left)-- yes, I know, I didn't think overalls could be classy either, but here it's happened. Of course, if none of these float your boat, there's always the mint green heels and the up-to-the-bicep leather gloves. After that, this collection doesn't have a whole lot of depth -- all the things aforementioned work, and well. Then it just kind of drops off. But if you need some inspiration for wearing leggings, take a look at the rest of the collection here -- they've styled them well.
